CHAIRMAN'S LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL 



To His Honour 

The Honourable Albert Matthews, LL.D., 

Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario 

May It Please Your Honour: 

The undersigned respectfully presents the Thirty-Seventh Annual Report 
of The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario for the fiscal year 
which ended October 31, 1944. 

The record of the Commission's work presented in this Annual Report 
relates to three principal fields — the co-operative municipal field, the field 
of rural supply, and the northern Ontario field. The first two cover the 
Commission's activities on behalf of the co-operative systems, and the last 
relates to its trusteeship of the Northern Ontario Properties on behalf of the 
Province. Throughout the various sections of the Report dealing broadly 
with physical operation of the plants, constructional activities and financial 
statements, these fields of activity are clearly differentiated. 

The Report also presents for the calendar year 1944 financial statements 
and statistical data relating to the municipal electric utilities operating in 
conjunction with the co-operative systems for the supply of electrical service 
throughout the Province. 

HYDRO IN 1944 

Less spectacular than in the early years of the war, but none the less 
essential, have been Hydro's achievements in the past year. That there 
has been no slackening in Ontario's war effort is shown by the fact that the 
electrical energy generated and purchased by the Commission to supply the 
Ontario load reached an all time high, exceeding twelve billion kilowatt- 
hours. Except for a few peak load periods when temporary cuts of short 
duration had to be made in ''at will" power, all the demands for war activities 
in Ontario were met and essential civilian domestic and municipal power 
requirements suffered no shortage. 

During the winter of 1943-44 strict economy and conservation of energy 
was required on the part of all citizens to enable the Commission to meet 



vi THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

war's demands. Later in 1944, due to some curtailment in the power demands 
of a few industries, the Dominion Power Controller was able to ease certain 
restrictions against municipal and commercial use which had been in effect 
since 1942. The margin between available supplies and present demands is 
still very small, but the total power supply has been made more effective by 
careful co-ordination, by improved equipment and by constant vigilance. 

RELIABILITY OF HYDRO SERVICE 

It is a remarkable tribute to the efficiency and reliability of Hydro 
service that, during and following the great snowstorm of December 12, 1944, 
when transportation throughout the southern areas of Ontario was seriously 
crippled, electricity remained everywhere available "at the flip of a switch" 
for all the multiplicity of needs of our modern way of living. 

Hydro service continued to pump our municipal water supplies and light 
our streets; it supplied power for the elevators in our public and commercial 
buildings and in many ways assisted in the restoration of transportation 
service. In our homes it provided hot meals and baths for many whose vitality 
was lowered as a result of struggling through the snow. It provided power for 
the radio and thus enabled measures for the alleviation of distress to be 
co-ordinated. 

Throughout the countryside well illuminated farm houses gave assurance 
of safety and protection against the menace of the storm. Food supplies 
were protected by electric refrigeration and farm operations dependent 
upon electrical service continued to function with full efficiency. Without 
the aid of Hydro service the hardships resulting from this snowstorm, 
unprecedented since the era of automobile transportation, would everywhere 
have been more difficult to cope with. 

Hydro service is being maintained under difficulties resulting from 
wartime shortage of manpower and materials. About 1,200 Hydro employees 
are at present either in the armed forces or in the service of the Dominion 
government doing special technical work associated with the war. 

CO-ORDINATION OF POWER SUPPLIES AND LOAD DEMANDS 

During 1944 also, operating conditions on the whole were favourable. 
All the Commission's generating plants, with an aggregate normal capacity 
of 1,630,000 horsepower, were operated to the maximum extent. Generating 
units in all stations were only taken out of use in order to perform absolutely 
essential maintenance work. 

Water conditions on most rivers and storage basins were sub-normal 
during the year. The spring run-off was less than that usually attained and 
in some areas an acute water shortage developed during the summer and 
fall months, necessitating strict conservation of storages during this period. 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION vii 

Fall rains were extremely light and the customary replenishment of storage 
at this time of the year was small, so that the winter season was entered 
with water storages in many areas below satisfactory levels. 

No trouble from ice runs was experienced during the year. Electrical 
storms were numerous but damage was not serious except on two occasions 
when fires, due to lightning, caused damage to switching equipment at the 
Ontario Power plant on the Niagara river. 

Amalgamation of Southern Ontario Divisions Proving Beneficial 

An outstanding feature in the operation of the Southern Ontario system 
during the year was the creation of the Power Supervisors' office at Toronto. 
The organization of this office was completed early in the summer when it 
commenced operation on a 24 hour basis. Through an intricate system of 
communication lines, the power supervisors are in constant touch with all 
dispatching points and are in constant control of all generation, storages 
and purchased power, as well as the load demands of all main points of dis- 
tribution. Thus supply and demand are co-ordinated in a manner which 
makes the most efficient use of the Commission's resources and increases the 
reliability of service to all customers served by the Southern Ontario system. 

Automatic Control of Frequency 

Since 1934 the frequency of the Commission's Niagara division has 
been automatically controlled, and more recently similar facilities were 
installed for precise control of frequency of the Eastern Ontario division. 
Amalgamation of these divisions, along with the Georgian Bay division to 
form the Southern Ontario system, has involved physical interconnection 
through a frequency-changer set at Chats Falls, thereby establishing syn- 
chronous operation of all generators on the system. Synchronous motors and 
electric clocks also keep in step throughout the whole area from Ottawa to 
Windsor, and maintain remarkably constant rate. 

One of the advantages of this interconnection is the ability to transfer 
power from one division to another, in order to make most efficient use of all 
available power resources. At the same time, interconnection created the 
problem of controlling the power transferred from one division to another. 
This involves regulating the amount of power generated in each division 
to provide for divisional fluctuations in demand and also regulating the 
transfer of blocks of power back and forth from one division to another. 
This problem was solved by the Commission's engineers, with specially 
designed equipment for regulating the output of Chats Falls, Barrett Chute 
and plants of the Gatineau Power Company supplying power to the Com- 
mission. Control of these widely separated plants is exerted from Chats 
Falls through carrier communication channels, totalling about 200 circuit 
miles.

On the Southern Ontario system the primary load throughout the year, 
excepting one month, had a slightly higher horsepower peak than in the 
previous year which was the highest on record. The primary energy demands 
on this system however, declined by about half of one per cent. 

For the Thunder Bay system primary energy demands were nearly ten 
per cent greater as a result of the new load delivered to the Steep Rock Iron 
Mines in the Rainy River district of the Northern Ontario Properties. In 
other areas served by the Northern Ontario Properties a further recession 
in gold mining activities caused a ten per cent drop in the output of primary 
energy. 

The total output handled by the Commission from all sources in 1944 
exceeded 12,000,000,000 kilowatt-hours. This was 2.2 per cent or about 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION ix 

260,000,000 kilowatt-hours above the previous year's output. Energy 
output for primary power purposes, which represents about ninety per cent 
of the total, decreased slightly from 10,853,000,000 kilowatt-hours in 1943 to 
10,787,000,000 kilowatt-hours in 1944. 

REORGANIZATION OF DEPARTMENTS 

For some time the Commission has been studying its internal organiza- 
tion with a view to improving its efficiency by regrouping the duties and 
responsibilities of its senior officers. The Commission has now given approval 
to a regrouping into seven main divisions of the various departments and 
sections of the Commission. This new grouping which includes three engineer- 
ing divisions is as follows: (1) Executive and Secretarial; (2) Accounting; 
(3) Treasury; (4) Engineering — Operations; (5) Engineering — Design and 
Construction; (6) Engineering — Municipal; (7) Sales Promotion. 

Over the past ten years the Commission's business practically doubled, 
its revenues from the supply of power and other operations increased from 
3034 to 58J/£ million dollars and the energy handled by the Commission 
increased from 6J^ to more than 12 billion kilowatt-hours. Much of this 
increase was due to the war but it meant increased work and responsibility in 
all departments of the Hydro service and especially to the engineering depart- 
ments. It is believed that the regrouping effected will be beneficial to the 
efficiency of the whole organization. 

FINANCIAL OPERATING RESULTS 

Wartime conservation measures, put into effect in 1942, continued to 
restrict energy consumption and load growth until just before the end of the 
fiscal year in October when the restrictions were lifted. Nevertheless the 
supply of power to municipalities continued to grow with a resultant increase 
in revenue of about five per cent. Revenue from power sold to large industries 
as system customers, also increased slightly. 

Wartime factors tending to increase costs of operation were off-set by 
lessened expenses, particularly by an appreciable decrease in interest charges, 
so that aggregate expenses of the Southern Ontario system were less then last 
year. The increased use of power by the co-operating municipalities, with 
lowered aggregate expenses for this system gave a lower cost per horsepower. 
Anticipating this the Commission, effective January 1, 1944, reduced interim 
rates for a large number of municipalities. Altogether, the financial outcome 
for 1944 as to revenues and costs in southern Ontario was eminently satis- 
factory. 

On the Thunder Bay system a moderate decline in revenues from the 
sale of power to mines and paper mills was more than off-set by increase in 
power supplied to municipalities and to the Rainy River district of Northern 
Ontario Properties for the use of the Steep Rock Iron Mines. Taken in 



x THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

conjunction with relatively unchanged current expenses the financial oper- 
ating condition of this system was exceptionally good in 1944. 

In the districts of northern Ontario other than the new Rainy River dis- 
trict, there was continued decline in revenue from power used for gold and 
nickel production, particularly in the early months of the year but some re- 
ductions in expenses were effected and the financial operating results of the 
Northern Ontario Properties as a whole continued to reflect a sound condition. 

Assistance to Small Municipalities With Higher Wholesale Unit Costs 

It will be recalled that early in 1944 the Commission, reporting to the 
Provincial Legislature respecting differences in the cost of power supplied 
municipalities, stated that it had recommended to the cost contract munici- 
palities that they be charged a small amount in the cost of power to be applied 
to bringing down the maximum cost per horsepower in certain exceptional 
cases. On March 15, 1944 the Ontario Municipal Electric Association adopted 
the following resolution: 

"While adhering to the basic principle of the supply of power at cost, 
the Ontario Municipal Electric Association recommend to the co-operat- 
ing municipalities, which comprise its membership, that they agree to a 
voluntary levy of not more than five cents per horsepower on their 
municipal load in order to reduce the price to those municipalities whose 
power costs are excessive; and that this fund be used to reduce the price 
of power to these municipalities to not less than $39.00 per horsepower." 

In accordance with this resolution The Hydro-Electric Power Com- 
mission, for the fiscal year ended October 31, 1944, reduced to $39.00 per 
horsepower the wholesale cost of power to a number of small cost contract 
municipalities whose cost in accordance with their contract would have 
exceeded this maximum. 

Due to the large aggregate load taken by the municipalities in 1944 
which tended to keep down the unit cost to all municipalities, the Commission 
was able to make this reduction in the price of power with a levy of only two 
cents per horsepower. 

Hydro Utilities "Out of Debt" 

The record of financial progress of the municipal electrical utilities, as 
summarized in the Commission's Annual Reports, has some outstanding and 
indeed impressive features. The financial year of the municipal Hydro 
utilities ends on December 31, and the records for 1944 are not all complete. 
However, by modifying the 1943 records by the use of data in hand for 1944 
and making certain estimates, the following statement can be made. 

There are now 298 urban Hydro utilities and the total of plant cost is 
$102,500,000. Because much of the plant has been financed by use of surplus 
and reserves, the total of debenture debt that was incurred throughout the 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION xi 

years was only $57,200,000. Of this amount all but $13 000,000 has already 
been repaid and, besides the actual repayments, an additional $5,500,000 
has been accumulated by certain municipalities in sinking funds specifically 
earmarked for meeting the principal on debentures. Thus the outstanding 
debentures not covered by sinking funds total only $7,500,000 or about 7.3 
per cent of the total cost of plant. 

But the relation of plant to debentures is only part of the financial picture. 
As long as a utility is a going concern it is likely to have at the end of any year 
current assets and current liabilities. The liabilities of the 298 municipalities 
other than debentures are recorded as $5,000,000. Available to meet these are 
current assets of a quickly realizable nature, of no less than $30,000,000. 
This gives an excess of current assets over current liabilities of $25,000,000, 
a sum three and one-half times as great as the debentures not covered by 
sinking funds. 

The figures cited are, of course, simply a summation of 298 separate 
utilities. Considering them individually 254 have liquid assets sufficient to 
discharge their total liabilities and of these 171 have actually paid off their 
debenture debt. Even the 44 Hydro utilities that were not actually in a 
position to consider their plant as debt free were well advanced towards such 
a status. This group of municipalities has a total plant of $15,800,000 
and their 'iquid assets applied against their total liabilities would leave 
only $1,300,000 as a remaining debenture debt against the plant. 

Utilization of Reserves 

It is the Commission's policy to defer until after the war any maintenance 
work not immediately essential for the security and satisfactory operation 
of its generating plants and other structures and equipment. A similar policy 
has governed the local Hydro commissions. It follows, therefore, that there 
is a large accumulated amount of normal maintenance work to be overtaken, 
increased in volume by the extra depreciation resulting from continuous 
operation at high loads. 

To meet the costs of the maintenance work which has been deferred, and 
of new construction involving many overdue improvements and additions, 
the Commission and the local utilities have set aside during the war special 
reserves and have accumulated surpluses. Thus the surpluses accumulated 
by the local Hydro utilities are earmarked for an active programme of main- 
tenance work and new construction. The programme at present planned 
would involve expenditures for deferred maintenance and new capital con- 
struction of about $6,000,000 per annum for the immediate post-war period. 

ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES 

Although the Commission, during the past year, has completed no large 
generating plants or extensive transmission lines, nevertheless month by 



xii THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

month and year by year the basic engineering work essential to the function- 
ing of the whole Hydro service goes on without ceasing. Such co-ordinated 
planning for improved service involves many undertakings which were they 
not a relatively small part of a huge operating system would themselves be 
engineering accomplishments of no mean magnitude. For example, at 
Burlington transformer station one 40,000 kva synchronous condenser was 
placed in service in January and a second one in June. Again, the arrange- 
ments made to centralize in Toronto the overall supervision of operations in 
southern Ontario, involve the construction and co-ordination of an intricate 
system of communications and supervisory equipment. 

During the war rapid changes have taken place in the power demands of 
certain industries. In other cases war industries have been established where 
no industrial development existed. Thus the Commission has had to be 
ready at all times, quickly to modify its distribution networks by increasing 
the capacity of its lines in one place, moving transformers from place to place, 
taking down copper conductor no longer required and re-erecting it in areas 
possibly hundreds of miles distant to meet new and unexpected developments. 
All this has been done under conditions made more difficult by the shortage 
of both labour and materials. 

The chief engineering works carried on during the past year were the 
completion of the transmission line and auxiliary equipment serving the 
Steep Rock Iron Mines; the construction of a fourth unit of 19,000 horse- 
power at the Alexander development on the Nipigon river, and the additions 
at Burlington transformer station already referred to. 

Long Range Planning 

The power loads in southern Ontario, greatly increased by war demands, 
have put to use practically all available developed power sources. To serve 
these loads, the transmission and distribution facilities and the generating 
station capacities have been taxed to, and in some cases beyond, their proper 
economic limits in order to minimize expenditures of labour and materials in 
wartime. In the post-war years, after a period of adjustment, it is expected 
that normal load growth will be resumed and new power resources and facilities 
will be required. In addition many of the old facilities provided 20 or 30 years 
ago have become inadequate for best efficiency in the enlarged system, as 
it is expected to develop. 

In order that extensions and rehabilitations may be made in an orderly 
manner to dovetail into a master plan, the Planning engineers of the Com- 
mission have been studying various possibilities of load growth that may 
develop throughout Ontario in the next 10 or 15 years, and determining the 
best sequence of power developments and arrangement of transmission and 
other facilities to meet the growing needs. It is, of course, not possible to 
foresee all contingencies, but it is possible to determine the governing engineer- 



1944 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION xiii 

ing principles and make a long term plan, flexible as to details but orderly in 
its main framework. In making these studies the Commission's network 
calculator has rendered good service. 

As part of its long term planning programme for improved transmission 
and distribution facilities, the Commission in 1944 decided to install at 
Essex transformer station a 40,000 kva synchronous condenser purchased 
at the same time as the two installed at Burlington transformer station and 
work on the project is in hand. Again, in the southern area of the Niagara 
peninsula the 44 kv supply of power from Niagara transformer station to 
Welland and Dunnville was replaced with a 26.4 kv supply from the 110 to 
26.4 kv Crowland transformer station situated close to the centre of the 
very large industrial loads served in this area. The copper conductor used to 
supply the Steep Rock Iron Mine was largely salvaged as a result of these 
improvements. 

Improvements to distribution networks included the replacement of 
a number of oil breakers with others of higher rupturing capacity; the 
erection at Tweed of a 100 kva 44/4 kv distribution station to supply the 
rural district; at Oakville a new station of 600 kva capacity, and a new station 
of 2,000 kva for the Polymer Corporation. 

In the Thunder Bay system changes to relay, metering and switching 
equipment were made to improve service security and promote more efficient 
use of available power. The capacities of Port Arthur distribution station 
and Rosslyn distribution station were increased. 

In the Rainy River district of Northern Ontario Properties completion 
of 120 miles of 110 kv transmission line from Port Arthur to Steep Rock Iron 
Mines, placed in service on November 28, 1943, was followed during 1944 
by the erection of five patrolmen's houses along the right-of-way and by the 
construction of a 450 kva 44/8 kv step-down station at Atikokan to supply 
the townsite for Steep Rock Iron Mines. 

Niagara Falls Remedial Weir Completed 

One hydraulic project, the remedial weir above Niagara Falls, was 
completed in September 1944. The weir, built in the swift water above the 
rapids in the upper river, extends about 1,400 ft. toward the American shore 
from a point about 200 ft. from the Canadian shore. The gaps adjacent to 
the ends of the weir maintain an even flow of water close to the shores. At 
the Canadian side this increased flow maintains an ample supply of water for 
the power plants down stream. On the United States side the additional 
water ensures movement of ice from the vicinity of the intake of the United 
States power plants and enhances the beauty of the American falls. 

The weir itself is entirely below the surface of the water and consists of a 
loose rock fill in which individual pieces of rock up to 10 tons in weight are 



xiy THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

used. When work ceased in 1944 the weir had restored levels in the upper 
river to the extent contemplated, had enhanced the appearance of the 
American falls and improved conditions for generation of power on both sides 
of the river. 

Progress at Alexander Generating Station 

The extension at Alexander generating station on the Nipigon river 
consists of the installation of a fourth unit for which provision was made when 
the plant was designed in 1929-30. The new unit of 19,000 horsepower will 
give the plant a total rated capacity of 73,000 horsepower, and with the 
existing plant at Cameron Falls a total capacity of 148,000 horsepower will 
be available on the Nipigon river. 

Under the extra strain imposed by operation at full capacity for long 
periods repairs and renewals are considerably heavier and some essential work 
of this character was done at the Ontario Power plant at Niagara, at Eugenia 
Falls and Elliott Chute in the Georgian Bay division, and at High Falls in 
eastern Ontario. 

Detailed surveys were made of a power site near the mouth of the 
Aguasabon river about sixty miles east of the Nipigon. The information 
secured indicates the possibility of completing a development having a 
capacity of 25,000 to 30,000 horsepower utilizing in addition to the flow of the 
Aguasabon river itself the flow diverted from the watershed of Long lake. 

CONSERVATION OF NATURAL RESOURCES 

The Hydro-Electric Power Commission is intimately concerned with the 
conservation of Ontario's natural resources in its widest and most beneficial 
interpretation. 

Although primarily concerned with the development and utilization of 
electric power derived from the Province's rivers, the Commission never- 
theless recognizes that water power is only one of several beneficial services 
in which water resources are employed. Other uses are domestic and municipal 
supply, agriculture and irrigation, navigation, fisheries, lumbering, flood 
control, sanitation and industrial requirements. 

When planning to utilize water power resources, it is important to 
relate any proposed development to possible development at other sites on 
the same river. Before any development is undertaken a general scheme for 
a properly co-ordinated development of all power sites and storage facilities 
on the river is worked out. This was done on the Madawaska before the 
developments at Barrett Chute and Bark Lake dam were undertaken. Investi- 
gations in greater detail are now being made at special sites on the Madawaska 
river so that the plans for development may be so far advanced that no delay 
is experienced when the time comes to make use of them. 

Conservation also implies the maintenance and, where possible, the 
improvement of the regimen of the flow of all power producing rivers. This 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION xv 

in turn involves conservation of our land resources by the prevention of 
erosion, by the maintenance of fertility of the soil and by the use of the land 
in every case for the purposes for which it is most suitable. 

To further this objective the Commission, during 1944, assisted a Dom- 
inion-Provincial project of some significance, namely, a report on the Ganar- 
aska watershed, being represented by a member of its staff on an Interdepart- 
mental Committee of the Province. The report was prepared through the 
joint authorization of the Dominion Government, represented by the Advisory 
Committee on Reconstruction, and the government of Ontario, represented 
by the Interdepartmental Committee on Conservation and Rehabilitation, 
and deals with the problems of conservation, flood control and rehabilitation 
in the watershed of the Ganaraska river which drains into lake Ontario 
at Port Hope. 

Although this watershed of 100 square miles does not afford water powers 
of the magnitude required for modern central station electric supply, there 
were at one time 36 dams on the river, with 35 sawmills, 18 grist mills and 5 
woollen mills. The problems dealt with in this sample or "type" survey 
are typical of those facing numerous other areas in the Province and the 
method of study and attack will serve as a guide elsewhere. 

Further studies, in all probability, will be made in other river valleys and 
with this in view, a National Resources Research Committee has been formed 
by the Provincial Department of Planning and Development. The Com- 
mission's Hydraulic Engineer has been appointed to this committee. 

NEW PROPERTIES IN NORTHERN ONTARIO 

The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario has agreed, on behalf 
of the Government, to purchase the power system of the Northern Ontario 
Power Company Limited for $12,500,000, and when the necessary legal 
matters have been completed the Commission will take over its operation.* 
The properties include eight hydro-electric plants with an installed capacity 
of 66,840 horsepower, 739 miles of transmission lines, 157 miles of distribution 
lines and 421 miles of telephone lines. Of the installed capacity of 66,840 
horsepower, 26,040 horsepower is generated at 60 cycles; the remainder is 
generated at 25 cycles. 

For some years the Commission has been selling power wholesale to the 
Northern Ontario Power Company and at the same time supplying adjacent 
mining territory with service. When acquired the properties will be amal- 
gamated with the Abitibi district of the Northern Ontario Properties. By 
eliminating duplication of service economies will be secured. The acquisition 
would also enable the Commission to extend its Hydro rural service to many 
consumers in the areas served by the Company. It would further allow the 
Commission to reduce the cost of power to the mines in this territory from 
*This was done on March 27, 1945. 



xvi THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

$36.00 per horsepower to the price recently approved by the Government 

to all mines served by the Commission, which is $27.50 per horsepower. 

The new price of $27.50 per horsepower will represent a substantial saving 

and encourage development in hard rock mining in the immediate post-war 

period. 

BRIGHT FUTURE FOR RURAL ELECTRIFICATION 

The release by the Metals Controller of an increased quantity of material 

for the construction of rural primary lines that would bring Hydro service 

to food producers, or otherwise be of assistance to the war economy in rural 

areas, enabled the Commission to resume on a moderate scale the extension 

of rural service. A total of four hundred miles of primary line, chiefly short 

extensions to existing lines, was actually constructed and service was given 

to about 10,000 new consumers, 7,000 of whom received service from lines 

which already existed. The total number of consumers on rural lines at the 

end of 1944 exceeded 146,600. 

Notwithstanding restrictions ordered by the Dominion Power Con- 
troller, which continued in force until October 1, 1944, the average power 
sold to all rural consumers, including war industries in rural areas, increased 
by nearly fourteen per cent. Although the various restrictions, both on 
extensions and use, have held back the utilization of Hydro service in rural 
Ontario, there is strong evidence everywhere of a keen desire to use more 
electricity — a desire that has been stimulated by the new uniform rural 
rate structure. Plans are being formulated and preparations made for 
increasing the use of Hydro service in farming communities after the war, in 
order to bring closer the time when Hydro service throughout the rural areas 
of Ontario will be taken as much for granted as it now is in the cities, towns 
and villages of this Province. 

ADAPTATION TO WARTIME REQUIREMENTS 

As is the case with many other large electric supply organizations, the 
staff of the Commission formerly engaged in promotional activities has, 
during the war years, devoted its attention primarily to the more efficient 
use of electricity by all consumers, to promoting new and more effective 
uses by war industries, to the encouragement of improved lighting in war 
production and to problems related to priorities and permits for the use of 
rationed or scarce supplies. 

During 1944 a pamphlet entitled "Hydro on the Farm" was widely 
distributed to members of the Radio Forum and to various agricultural 
organizations throughout the Province. The revised rural rate structure and 
uniform rates and service classifications were explained to the public through 
general advertising channels. 

A motion picture entitled "The Romance of a River" was produced and 
widely shown throughout the Province and copies of the film were sent to 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION xvii 

Canada's army overseas. This picture tells the story of the Ogoki diversion 
and the DeCew Falls development. 

Great interest has been developed in the subject of adequate lighting 
in schools; more than two hundred received assistance in planning better 
lighting. Offices and industries have also shown a steadily increasing interest 
in problems regarding better lighting. It is expected that when equipment 
is readily available this increased interest will react favourably to the revenue 
of the Hydro utilities and the Commission. 

TESTING AND RESEARCH 

All important materials and equipment purchased by the Commission 
are required to meet its specifications in order to ensure the high standard 
of construction which results in reliable, safe and economical operation. 
Routine inspection and testing are, therefore, an important part of the work 
of the Commission's laboratories. 

Research in various fields was primarily concerned with activities for 
the Dominion government having actual potential value in prosecuting 
the war. In addition important studies were made of possible post-war 
applications for electricity in both the industrial and rural fields. The 
electric smelting of Ontario ores, the quick freezing of foods and the develop- 
ment of an improved Hydro water-heating unit for domestic use are some of 
the projects under study. 

New developments in materials and equipment that after the war will 
become available to industry have been studied by the laboratories with a 
view to their application to the Commission's work. Plastics and synthetic 
rubber are well known examples; others occur in the field of electronics 
which offer new methods of recording electrical and physical quantities at a 
speed and accuracy hitherto impossible. 

A third group of investigations bear on the conservation of critical 
materials and the more efficient operation and maintenance of Commission's 
properties. Examples of these include studies of methods for prolonging the 
life of wooden poles by preservative treatment in situ ; methods for the early 
detection of faults in electrical insulation, and the protection of transformers, 
transmission lines and other electrical equipment against the hazards of 
lightning. An important section of the Commission's research activities is 
devoted to making improvements in the quality of concrete to make it more 
resistant to severe winter climate. 

Many benefits accrue to the Commission, to industry and to the public 
by the development of technical standards. To this end the laboratories 
co-operate in the technical work of the principal engineering and scientific 
bodies in Canada and the United States.

THE COMMISSION AND ITS EMPLOYEES 

Since its formation The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario 
has sought to build into the Hydro organization a deep sense of public 
responsibility. It was early recognized that this could not be achieved unless 
competent technical assistance was employed under conditions which would 
ensure continuity of service. The Commission, therefore, has adhered 
to the merit system in the appointment and promotion of personnel, it has 
given fair remuneration and a high degree of security of employment. In 
return it has demanded and received from its employees intelligent industrious 
application and loyalty to the organization. 

The Quarter Century Club 

The Commission, created in 1906, has now been functioning for thirty- 
eight years. During the first few years its staff was relatively small but as 
the years passed the number of employees who had been with the Commission 
many years steadily increased until in 1938 it became possible to form the 
Quarter Century Club, with 109 active members. To-day those who have been 
with the Commission for twenty-five years or more number about 575 not 
including 30 retired on pension, and of this number 120 have served for 
thirty years or more. 

Employees in the Services 

In common with other industries the Commission has had to contend 
with a serious manpower shortage. Up to the present some 1,200 employees 
have enlisted in the armed services. Thirty-seven of these have been reported 
killed in action or missing and many have been decorated. When compulsory 
military service was instituted the Commission decided not to ask for defer- 
ments on behalf of its employees except for employees in certain vocations 
which required a lengthy period of training, and this policy has been consist- 
ently followed. 

Those employees returning from the armed forces and other war work 
are, and will be assured of fair considerate treatment and protection of their 
seniority. 

Accident Prevention and Safety 

The electrical supply industry necessarily involves certain work that is 
classed as being of a hazardous nature. The Commission therefore, maintains 
a Safety Engineering staff whose principal function is directed towards the 
prevention of accidents. Every effort is made to ensure safe working con- 
ditions, fire protection, health and sanitation. 

Accident prevention meetings educate the employees in safety measures 
and give instruction in artificial respiration. During the past year Com- 
mission employees have successfully resuscitated two fellow employees from 
electrical shock and in addition three members of the public — two from gas 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION xix 

asphyxiation and one from drowning. During the past few years the accident 
frequency has gradually declined. 

Health Service 

The Commission maintains a Medical staff to safeguard the health of 
its employees and to care for the injured. On all large construction jobs 
first aid personnel and equipment are supplied. Health conditions at all 
construction camps, including periodic examinations of drinking water supplies, 
are carefully checked. 

Many power stations and communities connected therewith are situated 
in isolated places. In these nurses and field hospitals, together with com- 
munity welfare activities, are maintained. 

All employees to be engaged on a permanent basis are medically examined 
as well as all temporary employees going into unorganized territory. 

During the past year an equitable plan of sick leave allowance has been 
instituted under which each employee may know exactly the benefits to which 
he is entitled. 

Pensions and Insurance 

The Commission's employees have had a contributory Pension and 
Insurance Plan for many years. Certain employees were unable for various 
reasons to qualify for the benefits under this plan and to assist this group a 
Savings and Retirement plan has recently been inaugurated which will build 
up a substantial fund for each employee by the time he leaves the employment 
of the Commission or reaches retirement age. 

The Commission's desire is to ensure that the working conditions and 
remuneration for its employees shall be maintained at satisfactory levels 
consistent with economical business management. It believes in co-operation 
and consultation to this end and joint meetings are held regularly between 
representatives of the employees and management at various points to discuss 
difficulties which are usually settled to the satisfaction of both parties. To 
eliminate as far as possible discrepancies between various positions and 
districts a system of job evaluation and wage schedule has been established 
by co-operative action of employees and management. 

THE LOCAL COMMISSIONS AND PUBLIC SUPPORT 

This review of ' 'Hydro in 1944" would be incomplete without a tribute 
to the local Hydro commissions and their staffs. Throughout the war years 
the Commission has received splendid co-operation and in their capacity 
as distributors the Hydro utilities have made service to war plants paramount. 

That electricity supply as a public function is now an accepted feature 
of Ontario's economic structure and receives public support, is largely due 
to the faithful service of the local Hydro organizations. Hydro is in fact 
broad-based upon the people's will and is loyally served by men and women 
who are inspired by the best traditions of public responsibility.

utilities served by the Thunder Bay system amounted to $172,198.32, as 
compared with a net surplus of $144,848.45 for the previous year. 



AFTER THE WAR 

Forecasting post-war trends in Canada's power supply requirements is 
difficult because variations in power demands are influenced chiefly by the 
industrial load. Before the war Canada had reached fifth place in world trade 
among exporting nations and has since acquired a greatly enlarged capacity 
to produce both agricultural and manufactured products. The ability to 
export these products depends not only upon matters of provincial and 
national economy but upon international trends and policies. 

So far as Ontario is concerned it would appear to be in a relatively 
advantageous position with regard to power supplies in the immediate post- 
war era. During the later war years the Commission has been able to put 
to use all available power and energy and is virtually operating without any 
idle reserves of power. In fact, certain loads have been and are being cut 
during heavy peak load periods. This means that when war production 
eases off the Commission will welcome the accumulation of small power 
surpluses that will give it a safe margin of capacity over primary load and 
enable it to undertake a heavy programme of rehabilitation. After such 
safety reserves have been reestablished, the Commission will be able to 
relinquish certain power supplied for the war's duration under short term 
contracts. 

Throughout the years the policies basic to the Hydro enterprise have 
resulted in a higher proportion of energy being supplied to the domestic load, 
a very stable load, than is usually the case elsewhere. Furthermore, even in 
the industrial field the Hydro load is well distributed to industries of a 
diversified character. Many of Ontario's factories therefore will quickly be 
reconverted to resume their former peacetime production in order to supply 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION xxv 

the large backlog of consumer needs. As the country returns to peacetime 
conditions, active salesmanship will be brought to bear to stimulate the 
demand for such consumer goods. The Hydro Commission is planning 
to resume its sales promotion programme interrupted by the war and is 
making plans for this work covering domestic, rural, commercial, street 
lighting and industrial fields. In the rural field special attention will first be 
given to promoting the use of equipment which will result in increased cash 
returns to the farmers. For urban service emphasis will be put upon the 
sale of appliances having good load building characteristics such as ranges, 
water heaters and improved lighting. 

Whatever may be the immediate effect of the cessation of hostilities upon 
power demands in Ontario, it remains true that the wealth of a modern state 
and its standard of living may largely be measured by its productive output 
per man-hour of work. The master key to greater productivity is to increase 
the amount of power employed per worker. In the long run therefore, Canada's 
continuing prosperity will depend upon whether or not it continues to develop 
and put to beneficial use increasing amounts of power derived from the 
water power resources with which this country has been so generously endowed.

THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

OF 

The Hydro-Electric Power Commission 

of Ontario 



FOREWORD 

and 

Guide to the Report 

THE Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario administers a co- 
operative municipal-ownership enterprise, supplying power throughout 
the Province of Ontario. The Commission was created in 1906 by special 
act of the Legislature and followed investigations by advisory commissions 
appointed as a result of public agitation to conserve the water powers of 
Ontario as a valuable asset of the people and to provide a more satisfactory 
supply of low-cost power in southern Ontario. In 1907 the Power Com- 
mission Act (7-Edward VII Ch. 19) was passed amplifying and extending 
the Act of 1906, and this Act — modified by numerous amending acts which 
now form part of the Revised Statutes of Ontario, 1937, Chap. 62, and 
subsequent amending Acts — constitutes the authority under which the Com- 
mission operates. 

The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario consists of a Chairman 
and two Commissioners, all of whom are appointed by the Lieutenant- 
Governor-in-Council to hold office during pleasure. One of the Commission- 
ers must be a member of the Executive Council and two may be members. 

In 1909, work was commenced on a comprehensive transmission system 
and by the end of 1910 power was being supplied to several municipalities. 

The Commission has now been supplying electrical energy for more than 
thirty-four years and the Report contains diagrams depicting the growth of 
the enterprise. During this period the costs of electricity to the consumer 
have been substantially reduced and the finances of the enterprise have been 
established on a secure foundation. 

At the end of 1944 the Commission was serving 904 municipalities in 
Ontario. This number included 26 cities, 106 towns, 305 villages and police 
villages and 467 townships. With the exception of 14 suburban sections of 
townships known as "voted areas," the townships and 121 of the smaller 
villages are now served as an amalgamated rural division of Hydro service 
with a uniform rate structure. Thus, no matter where rural service is given 
in Ontario by the Hydro, the rural consumer for the same class of service 
with the same consumption of electricity, pays the same amount on his 
quarterly bill. 

Financial Features of Go-operative Systems 

The basic principle governing the financial operations of the undertaking 
is, that electrical service be given by the Commission to the municipalities 



2 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

and by the municipalities to the ultimate consumers at cost. Cost includes 
not only all operating and maintenance charges, interest on capital investment 
and reserve for renewals or depreciation, for obsolescence and contingencies, 
and for stabilization of rates, but also a reserve for sinking fund or capital 
payments on debentures. 

The undertaking from its inception has been entirely self-supporting and 
no contributions have been made from general taxes except in connection with 
service in rural power districts. In this case, the Province, in pursuance of 
its long established policy of assisting agriculture and with the approval of the 
urban citizens, assists extension of rural electrical service by a grant-in-aid of 
the capital cost and in other ways as specified and detailed in the Report. 

As the principle of ''service at cost" is radically different from that ob- 
taining in private organizations, where profit is the governing feature, it 
naturally results in different and in some ways unique administrative features. 

The undertaking as a whole involves two distinct phases of operations as 
follows : 

The First phase of operations is the provision of the electrical power — 
either by generation or purchase — and its transformation, transmission and 
delivery in wholesale quantities to individual municipal utilities, to large in- 
dustrial consumers, and to rural power districts. This phase of the operations 
is performed by The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario as trustee 
for the municipalities acting collectively in groups or ' 'systems", and the 
financial statements relating to these collective activities of the municipalities 
are presented in Section IX of the Report. Each system of municipalities, as 
provided in The Power Commision Act, forms an independent financial unit 
and the accounts are therefore segregated and separately presented for each 
system. In order, however, that there may be a comprehensive presentation 
of the co-operative activities of the undertaking as a whole, there are pre- 
sented, in addition, for the two main systems and miscellaneous co-operative 
activities, a balance sheet of assets and liabilities, a statement of operations, 
a tabulation of fixed assets, and summary combined statements respecting 
the various reserves. 

The Second phase of operations is the retail distribution of electrical 
energy to consumers, within the limits of the areas served by the various 
municipal utilities and throughout the rural areas of the Province. In the 
case of the consolidated rural power districts The Hydro-Electric Power 
Commission not only provides the power at wholesale, but also — on behalf of 
the respective individual townships — attends to all physical and financial 
operations connected with the distribution of energy at retail to the consumers 
within the rural power districts. Summary financial statements relating 
to rural service are presented in Section IX of the Report, and a general 
report on their operation is given in Section IV. 

In the case of cities, towns, many villages and certain thickly populated 
areas of townships, retail distribution of electrical energy provided by the 
Commission is in general conducted by individual local municipal utility 
commissions under the general supervision of The Hydro-Electric Power 
Commission of Ontario. The balance sheets, operating reports and statistical 
data relating to the individual urban electrical utilities are presented in Section 
X of the Report.

4 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

For the Northern Ontario Properties held and operated by the Commis- 
sion in trust for the Province there are also presented in Section IX financial 
statements including a balance sheet, an operating account, and statements 
respecting reserves and capital expenditures. 

Further details respecting administration and explanations of the finan- 
cial tables presented in the Report are given in the introductions to sections 
IX and X on pages 95 and 177. 

Co-operative Systems Operating 

From time to time in accordance with provisions of The Power Commission 
Act various groups of municipalities have been co-ordinated to form systems 
for the purpose of obtaining power supplies from convenient sources. In some 
cases these small systems grew until their transmission lines interlocked with 
those of adjacent systems and it proved beneficial to consolidate the trans- 
mission networks and the financial and administrative features. Early in 
1944 the three systems serving southern Ontario, the Niagara, Georgian Bay 
and Eastern Ontario systems, were amalgamated to form the Southern 
Ontario system and financially the amalgamation was made retroactive to 
apply to the fiscal year 1942-3. The three former systems are now known 
as divisions of the Southern Ontario system. 

The Niagara division embraces municipalities in all the territory between 
Niagara Falls, , Hamilton and Toronto on the east and Windsor, Sarnia and 
Goderich on the west. It is served with 25-cycle power supplied from plants 
on the Niagara river, supplemented with power transmitted from generating 
plants on the Ottawa river and with power purchased from Quebec companies. 

The Georgian Bay division comprises municipalities in that part of the 
Province which surrounds the southern end of Georgian Bay and lies to the 
north of the territory served by the Niagara division. It includes the districts 
surrounding lake Simcoe and extends as far north as Huntsville in the Lake 
of Bays district and south to Port Perry. Its power supplies, 60 cycles, are 
derived chiefly from local water power developments. 

The Eastern Ontario division serves all of Ontario east of the areas com- 
prising the Georgian Bay and the Niagara divisions. It includes the districts 
of Central Ontario, St. Lawrence, Rideau, Ottawa and Madawaska; formerly 
separate systems. Its power supplies, 60 cycles, are from local developments 
supplemented by purchases from other sources. 

The Thunder Bay System comprises the cities of Port Arthur and Fort 
William, adjacent rural sections, the village of Nipigon, and the mining 
district of Longlac. Two developments on the Nipigon river supply 60-cycle 
power. 

Northern Ontario Properties 

In addition to its operations on behalf of the partner municipalities, the 
Commission, under an agreement with the Province, holds and operates the 
Northern Ontario Properties in trust for the Province. For the purposes of 
financial administration these properties are treated as one unit. The prin- 
cipal areas in the vast territory of northern Ontario at present receiving 
service are the Abitibi District comprising the territory served by 25-cycle 
power from the Abitibi Canyon development, together with a small area in

the southern portion of the district of Sudbury in which mining properties 
are served with 60-cycle power; the Sudbury District comprising the city of 
Sudbury and the adjoining mining area known as Sudbury Basin; the Nipis- 
sing District centering around the city of North Bay on the shore of lake 
Nipissing; the Patricia District comprising the territory within transmission 
distance from the Ear Falls development at the outlet of lac Seul on the 
English river including the Red Lake mining area, and the territory immed- 
iately north of lake St. Joseph in the territorial district of Patricia served 
with power from a development at Rat Rapids on the Albany river; and the 
Rainy River district which derives its power from the Thunder Bay system. 
Included in the Northern Ontario Properties are rural districts on Manitoulin 
island, and others adjacent to the communities served in the various districts 
of northern Ontario. Power supplies are 60 cycle except from Abitibi canyon 
development. 

The geographic boundaries of the various systems and districts are shown 
on the maps of transmission lines and stations at the back of the Report. 

The power supplies for the systems and Northern Ontario districts are 
listed in the first table of Section II of the Report on pages 16 and 17. 

The Annual Report 

The table of contents, pages xxxiii and xxxiv lists the matters dealt with in 
the Report. At the end of the Report there is a comprehensive index. To 
those not conversant with the Commission's Reports, the following notes 
will be useful. 

In Section II, pages 15 to 35, dealing with the operations of the systems, 
are a number of diagrams showing graphically the monthly loads on the 
several systems and districts. Tables are also presented showing the amounts 
of power taken by the various municipalities during the past two years. 

The rural distribution work of the Commission has proved of widespread 
interest and special reference to this is made in Section IV on pages 45 to 62. 

In Sections VI and VII will be found information respecting progress of 
work on new power developments and on transmission system extensions, 
together with photographic illustrations. 

About one-half of the Report is devoted to financial and other statistical 
data which are presented in two sections IX and X already referred to above. 

Frequent enquiries for the rates for service to consumers are received 
by the Commission. For the urban municipalities served by the Commission 
these are given in Statement "E" starting on page 310. For the rural power 
districts they are given in Section IV on page 49. Certain statistical data 
resulting from the application of the rates in urban utilities are given 
in Statement "D". This statement is prefaced by a special introduction 
starting on page 290. 

In its Annual Reports the Commission aims to present a comprehensive 
statement respecting the activities of the whole undertaking under its ad- 
ministration. Explanatory statements are suitably placed throughout the 
Report. The Commission receives many letters asking for general information 
respecting its activities, as well as requests for specific information concerning 
certain phases of its operations. In most cases the enquiries can satisfactorily 
be answered by simply directing attention to information presented in the 
Annual Report.

RIGHT-OF-WAY AND PROPERTY 

Urgent war demands for more industrial power, and some extensions 
to rural service made possible by partial removal of wartime restrictions, 
required additional distribution facilities for which lands were purchased 
and easement rights secured. 



SOUTHERN ONTARIO SYSTEM 

Renewal of easement and tree trimming rights, expiring in the years 
1939 to 1944, was continued and easement and tree trimming rights were 
secured for extensions to rural lines. 

To provide better and more centralized office space for increased business, 
particularly in rural districts, the Commission has purchased a number of 
buildings and as far as possible is bringing them up to a suitable standard. 
Where purchase was not feasible, leases of some rural offices were arranged. 
In some cases provision was made for use of storage and garage facilities. 

In order that these purchased or leased buildings may clearly be recog- 
ized as Hydro offices the Commission has adopted a standard lettering 
incorporating the full name of the Commission — 'The Hydro-Electric Power 
Commission of Ontario,' ' the Commission's coat of arms, and the appropriate 
office concerned — Rural Office, Operating Department, Electrical Inspection 
Office. 

Niagara Division 

In connection with the 25-cycle development at DeCew Falls, further 
progress was made in the acquisition of properties. Agreements for rights 
for disposal of excavated material were also negotiated. 

After a dispute of some forty year's standing agreement respecting the 
boundary between properties of the Department of Transport and properties 
acquired by the Commission in the purchase of the original DeCew Falls 
plant was finally reached. Monuments were erected to define the limits 
agreed upon. 

Many damage claims were settled in connection with the removal of 
towers and conductors of the original line constructed in 1909 from Allanburg 
to Dundas. 

In connection with right-of-way from DeCew Falls generating station 
to St. John's Valley junction and between York transformer stat on and 
Cooksville transformer station further strips or parcels of land were pur- 
chased. For the tower line from St. Thomas to Windsor the purchase of 
right-of-way was completed. 

In London a site formerly owned by the London Electric Company 
was sold.

Further settlements respecting easements for the twin wood-pole 110-kv 
line from Chats Falls switching station to Merivale Road junction were 
made. 



Georgian Bay Division 

The long standing claim for damage due to alteration of water level 
in 1927 at Hollow lake was settled. 

The purchase of the site occupied by the dam at Baysville, which controls 
the level of Lake of Bays, was completed. 

Eastern Ontario Division 

The former Canadian National Railways' right-of-way from Colborne 
to Port Hope was acquired. Portions of this right-of-way outside the urban 
centres were for the most part sold to abutting owners subject to perpetual 
rights for transmission lines. 

Easement and tree clearing rights were secured for a 110-kv line westerly 
from Haleys switching station to Chalk River. Lengthy negotiations with 
the Government authorities concerned were required to secure perpetual 
rights to cross the Petawawa Military Reserve. 

Some claims for damage resulting from the raising of water in Kaminiskeg 
lake were settled.

The distributing station site at Geraldton was enlarged by the purchase 
of an adjacent lot. 

Further easement and tree clearing rights on two transmission lines 
between Cameron Falls and Port Arthur were procured. 

Rights were secured for one mile of transmission line to Tombill Gold 
Mines Limited. 



NORTHERN ONTARIO PROPERTIES 

To facilitate the extension and administration of rural service, office 
buildings were secured and improved at Sudbury, Matheson and Matachewan. 
At Matheson a four-stall garage was constructed. 

Surveys 

Surveys were made for all properties acquired and sold during the year 
and for easement and other rights, both new and in renewal; 82 standard 
monuments were placed. 

General 

Assessments and tax bills from 315 municipalities and school sections 
were certified and where necessary, appeals were entered against assessments 
not in accordance with The Power Commission Act. 

Letters were written to 239 taxing authorities in the Province drawing 
attention to the fact that under The Assessment Act they are entitled to 
assess and tax residences occupied by employees, and for business, 
lands upon which business is being conducted. This was done to bring all 
properties under the provisions of The Power Commission and Assessment 
Acts. 

During the year 113.43 acres of land were acquired and 167.43 acres 
of surplus land were sold. These purchases and sales involved 153 transactions. 

Systematic efforts were continued to lease all available lands for agricul- 
tural or other purposes and all associated buildings have been well maintained. 
Revenue from leased properties increased substantially. 

217 new plans were made for the Title Record Books with the necessary 
corrections and indexing to bring the records up to date and also endorsations 
on the Title Record Plans to show the progress of all new rights obtained 
during the year. 

In all, 1,051 documents were recorded during the year.

SECTION II 



OPERATION OF THE SYSTEMS 



ALL generating equipment was used to the greatest extent possible and 
maximum use was made of all purchased power sources. No major 
failures occurred and service in all areas was maintained at a high level. 
At the Toronto Power plant the units which failed in 1943 and reduced the 
output of that plant by some 70,000 horsepower were repaired, the last of the 
damaged units being returned to service on December 4, 1944. No trouble 
from ice runs was experienced during the winter of 1943-4. On May 12, 1944, 
an additional diversion of 4,000 cubic feet per second was made available 
for power purposes on the Niagara river. 

Transformer and transmission equipment gave good service. Although 
electrical storms were rather numerous during the summer, comparatively 
little damage to equipment was suffered, except on two occasions when fires 
directly due to lightning caused considerable damage to switching equipment 
in the transformer station at the Ontario Power plant. 

Amalgamation of Systems 

Early in the year, the Niagara, Georgian Bay and Eastern Ontario 
systems were amalgamated to form the Southern Ontario system. The 
amalgamation was made retroactive to November 1, 1942, and consequently 
alters certain load statistics formerly published. As a result of the amalgama- 
tion, the maximum coincident peak of the Niagara, Georgian Bay and Eastern 
Ontario divisions has become the maximum peak of the Southern Ontario 
system.. The coincident peak for Southern Ontario is less than the sum of the 
individual divisions' peaks because of the difference in time at which maximum 
demands occur. These facts have to be noted in making comparisons with 
load figures of the previous year. 

Load Conditions, November 1, 1943, to October 31, 1944 — AH Systems 

War production reached its peak output in the spring of 1944. In the 
following summer, declining trends in primary power demands became 
apparent and on October 1, 1944, the Dominion Power Controller rescinded 
Orders PC-B PC-C and PC-5 which had restricted the use of power for 
certain specified purposes since September 1942. Contrary to expectations, 
the lifting of these restrictions did not result in any immediate increase in

♦Because the peak loads on the various generating plants and purchased power sources usually occur at 
different times, the sum of the individual peak loads would not represent the sum of the peak loads on the 
systems. Consequently, the column headed "peak load" is not totalled.

CAUTION: The figures for "Maximum normal plant capacity" reflect the capacity of the 
various plants under the most favourable operating conditions which can reasonably be considered 
as normal, taking into consideration turbine capacity as well as generator capacity, and also the 
net operating head and available water supply. 

Owing, among other things, to changes in generating equipment due to wear and tear or the 
replacement of parts, also to changes in limitations governing water levels and effective net heads, 
the maximum normal plant capacity is not a fixed quantity but is one which must be revised from 
time to time. 



It is particularly important to bear in mind that the column headed "Maximum normal plant 
capacity" cannot be taken as an indication of the dependable capacity of the various plants: in 
some cases it is, but in many cases it is not. Chief among the factors which govern the maximum 
dependable capacity of an hydraulic power plant and which are not reflected in column headed 
"Maximum normal plant capacity" are abnormal variations in water supply and operating 
limitations encountered when plants are so situated on a given stream as to be affected by one 
another.

load. This was due chiefly to extremely mild fall weather which retarded 
the usual seasonal upswing at this time of the year and counteracted any 
increase that might otherwise have occurred. 

The maximum aggregate peak load supplied by the Commission occurred 
in April 1944 and was 2,445,291 horsepower. This was 68,600 horsepower 
above the peak load of the previous year. The year's energy output was 
12,041,178,990 kilowatt-hours and exceeded the previous year's output by 
2.2 per cent. 



Combined primary demands of all systems, as intimated earlier in this 
section, showed a declining trend during the year as compared with the 
previous year. In December 1943, the demand for primary power reached 
a maximum for the year and was 2,348,492 horsepower, 3.6 per cent above the 
corresponding demand of the previous year. In October the increase was 2.7 
per cent. The year's energy output for primary power purposes receded 
from the previous year's record output of 10,852,987,547 kilowatt-hours to 
10,787,348,600 kilowatt-hours, a decrease of 0.6 per cent.

20 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

Details regarding the peak loads of the Southern Ontario and Thunder 
Bay systems and of the several districts of the Northern Ontario Properties, 
are given in the load curves in this section of the Report. 



SOUTHERN ONTARIO SYSTEM 

The year's maximum peak output on the Southern Ontario system for 
primary and secondary power, occurred in December 1943 and was 2,114,953 
horsepower. This was approximately 120,000 horsepower above the cor- 
responding peak of the previous year. The maximum output for primary 
power purposes also occurred during the month of December and was 
2,033,103 horsepower, exceeding the previous December peak by 4.3 per cent. 
However, as the year advanced, power demands of a few of the industries 
engaged in the production of basic war material slackened off, with the 
result that near the close of the year primary demands were less than 2 per 
cent above those of a year ago. 

The total energy output of the Southern Ontario system for primary and 
secondary power was 3.1 per cent greater than the output of the previous 
year. The output of energy classed as primary power and representing about 
90 per cent of the total, dropped from 9,227,651,469 kilowatt-hours in the 
previous year to 9,211,310,482 kilowatt-hours, a decrease of 0.2 per cent. 

No additional generation was added to the Southern Ontario system 
during the year. On May 12, 1944, a temporary additional 4,000 cubic feet 
of water per second was obtained from the Niagara river to ensure full output 
of all the Niagara River plants, including the DeCew Falls 25-cycle develop- 
ment. Water storage and stream flow on the rivers supplying the Georgian 
Bay and Eastern Ontario divisions of the Southern Ontario system were on 
the whole subnormal throughout the year. During the year, the normal flow 
of the Ottawa river was slightly below average. Except during the spring 
run-off, full use was made of the river flow in the operation of the Chats Falls 
plant. A portion of the excess spring flow was utilized to generate a small 
amount of surplus energy for export to the United States. 

Under a programme of water conservation carried over from the previous 
year, an appreciable amount of surplus energy, available at different pur- 
chased sources, was absorbed by the Commission during the first part of the 
year. Due to subnormal water storage and river flow later in the year, not 
all of the Quebec Power companies supplying power to the Commission were 
able to deliver their full contract energy commitments. 

From November 1, 1943, to April 27, 1944, 107,210,000 kilowatt-hours 
were resold to the Beauharnois Light, Heat and Power Company for use 
of the Aluminum Company of Canada. Assistance was also given to the 
Orillia Water, Light and Power Commission throughout the greater portion 
of the year. 

To take care of rising loads, the capacity of many distributing stations 
was increased during the year. In most instances these were stations serving 
comparatively small local loads and only involved the replacement of existing 
transformers by ones of a higher rating.

An outstanding feature in the operation of the Southern Ontario system 
during the year was the creation of the power supervisors' office at Toronto. 
The organization of this office was completed early in the summer and since 
then has been operating on a 24-hour basis. The chief function of the office 
is to co-ordinate supply and demand in a manner to ensure the most efficient 
use of the system's resources and at the same time improve reliability of 
service. 

During the year, facilities were installed for precise control of frequency 
of the Eastern Ontario division similar to facilities which have been in use 
on the Niagara division since 1934. Synchronous operation of all generators 
on the Southern Ontario system has thereby been established and all syn- 
chronous apparatus, such as clocks, also keep in step throughout the whole 
area from Ottawa to Windsor and maintain remarkably constant rate. 

Parallel operation of the divisions involves regulating the amount of 
power generated in each division to provide for fluctuating power demands 
throughout the Southern Ontario system. This was accomplished by the 
installation of specially designed equipment for regulating the output of 
Chats Falls, Barrett Chute and plants of the Gatineau Power Company 
supplying power to the Commission. Control of these widely separated 
plants is exerted from Chats Falls through carrier communication channels 
and very satisfactory results have been obtained.

Note: The yearly peak demands of the individual municipal Hydro utilities do not all occur 
during the same month of the year nor, for any given municipality, do they always occur in the 
same month in successive years; in nearly all cases however the yearly peak occurs during the 
second half of the calendar year. For this reason a comparison of the peaks occurring during the 
second half of the year as shown in the tables of this Section shows most satisfactorily the general 
trend of the local loads. The loads given above for Rural Hydro Service are a summation of the 
loads in the various operational districts and are similarly obtained.

THUNDER BAY SYSTEM 

The maximum primary peak demand of the Thunder Bay system 
occurred in December 1943 and was 125,737 horsepower. Compared with 
the corresponding peak load of the previous year, it shows an increase of 
15.8 per cent. Energy output for primary power purposes was 9.2 per cent 
greater than in the previous year. These large increases resulted chiefly 
from the initial delivery in December 1943, of about 20,000 horsepower to the 
Rainy River district of Northern Ontario Properties. 

Arrangements were continued in 1944 enabling the paper companies 
under the control of the Abitibi Power and Paper Company to transfer power 
for electric steam boiler operation from the generating station of the Kamin- 
istiquia Power Company, subsidiary of the Abitibi Power and Paper Company, 
through the Commission's transformers and over the Commission's trans- 
mission circuits. During the year 22,629,760 kilowatt-hours were thus 
transferred to the paper companies which, with the surplus energy available 
at the Cameron Falls and Alexander generating stations, produced a total 
of 110,297,400 kilowatt-hours for electric boiler operation.

NORTHERN ONTARIO PROPERTIES 

In areas served by the Northern Ontario Properties, the average output 
for primary power purposes receded by about 10 per cent. This was due 
chiefly to curtailment in gold mining activities. 



Abitibi District 

Compared with the previous year, the demand for primary power in the 
Abitibi district was considerably smaller. The primary peak load dropped 
from 177,882 horsepower to 155,496 horsepower, a decrease of 12.6 per cent, 
and the total energy demands for primary power during the year declined 
11 per cent.

Water storage at the beginning of the year was decidedly subnormal 
and in order to safeguard a continuous river flow sufficient to generate the 
primary load demands of the district, a programme of strict conservation of 
storage was followed up to near the spring run-off period, which commenced 
about the middle of April. For the balance of the year, except during a 
period of subnormal precipitation in July and August, river flow was generally 
good. However, the water situation for the year as a whole was below normal. 
Total production at the Canyon plant during the year was 933,000,000 kilo- 
watt-hours, as compared with 1,038,000,000 kilowatt-hours during the 
previous year. The year's total output includes 133,000,000 kilowatt-hours 
of surplus energy generated for delivery to the electric boilers at the paper 
mills of the Abitibi Power and Paper Company. 



During the latter part of May and early June, there were forest fires 
of serious proportions burning in several areas of the Abitibi district. At 
times these fires became a major menace to the Commission's transmission 
lines but fortunately comparatively little damage was done to the lines before 
the fires were finally brought under control.

Sudbury District 

The total load of the Sudbury district, all of which was for primary 
distribution, was slightly greater than the corresponding load of the previous 
year. The peak load of 21,945 horsepower exceeded that of the previous year 
by 1.8 per cent and the total energy consumption for the year was 2.4 per 
cent greater. 

Water conditions were subnormal in the Sudbury district throughout the 
year. To conserve storage on the Sturgeon and South River watersheds for 
use in the winter of 1944-5, approximately 5,000,000 kilowatt-hours were 
purchased from the Abitibi Power and Paper Company's Sturgeon Falls 
plant between the middle of July and the end of October, 1944. 



Nipissing District 



The Nipissing district peak load was 6,675 horsepower and exceeded the 
peak load of the previous year by 7.9 per cent. The energy consumption 
for the year was 7.1 per cent greater.

Water conditions in this district have been about normal but, in recent 
years, insufficient to generate the district load requirements. During 1944 
the shortage was approximately 9,130,000 kilowatt-hours, which was supplied 
from the Sudbury district's resources. 

Manitoulin District 

Power supplied to the Manitoulin district is purchased from the Mani- 
toulin Pulp Company. Operation throughout the year was normal. Compared 
with the previous year the peak load was 16.4 per cent greater and the year's 
energy requirements increased 9.5 per cent. 



Patricia District 

Compared with the previous year, primary demands in the Patricia 
district were smaller, both the peak and year's energy demands receding 
nearly 5 per cent. 

Power demands for the mining and refining of gold at the mines in the 
Patricia district have dropped to about one-half of what they were at the 
beginning of the war. As a result, considerably more reserve capacity is now 
available than formerly. Part of this reserve capacity was used to supply 
electric boiler load for heating purposes at three of the mining properties in

the Patricia area. Initial delivery to two of these mines was made in Dec- 
ember 1943 and a third in October 1944. About 8,000,000 kilowatt-hours 
were thus utilized. 



Rainy River District 

Parallel operation between the Rainy River district, which purchases 
power from the Thunder Bay system at cost, and the Ontario-Minnesota 
Pulp and Paper Company's system was commenced on November 28, 1943, 
and on December 9, 1943, delivery of approximately 10,000 horsepower was 
made to replace the original output of the Ontario-Minnesota Pulp and Paper 
Company's Moose Lake generating station, which was closed down at that 
time preparatory to the diversion of the Seine river and the pumping out of 
Steep Rock lake. Initial delivery of power for the pumps was made on 
December 15. Following this the generators at the Company's Moose Lake 
plant were converted to synchronous condensers and were placed in service 
near the end of February for the regulation of voltage at that point.

MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEMS 



During the war years it has been necessary to defer maintenance work 
not actually essential to maximum service for war production. Under war 
conditions heavier loads cause additional wear, and shortages in skilled 
labour and supplies have made it necessary to accept a somewhat lower 
standard of maintenance. Nevertheless, all essential equipment has been 
maintained in efficient operating condition. As evidence of this may be cited 
the absence of any serious failures during 1944 notwithstanding the high 
level of output throughout the year. 

Transmission lines were regularly patrolled. A careful examination 
was made of poles to locate those weakened by rot; several thousand defective 
poles were replaced, and extensive work was carried out treating the butts of 
other poles to retard rot. Insulators were checked systematically and defective 
units replaced to forestall failure and the resultant interruptions to service. 

Repairs were carried out on the generators and turbines at several 
power plants. In this connection, it is interesting to note that in the Toronto 
Power plant at Niagara Falls a technique was developed by means of which 
broken generator shafts 14 inches in diameter were effectively restored by

welding and heat treatment, at a fraction of the time and expense that 
would have been required to obtain and machine new shafts. 

At a number of transformer stations, 110,000- volt oil breakers were 
modernized to increase their capacity. Transformers varying in size from 
150 to 3,000 kva were rebuilt and restored to service. 



FORESTRY DIVISION 

Due to the loss of personnel to Military Service and the lack of suitable 
replacements, the extent and volume of Forestry operations have necessarily 
been curtailed. A brief statement of the volume of work performed this past 
fiscal year on the Southern Ontario system is given below. 

Line Clearing 

Operating and Rural department linemen assigned to work with forestry 
squads when in their respective districts have contributed in no small measure 
to what has been accomplished. Cooperation by the Department of Highways 
facilitated this work.

Forest Management 

The deciduous and coniferous trees planted in years past on areas 
available for this purpose were inspected. Some destruction has been caused 
in one area by rodents; remedial measures have been taken which it is hoped 
will prevent further damage. 

Reforestation 

Some deciduous tree seeds have been sown in areas along the Chippawa- 
Queenston Canal that will not support nursery stock until it could become 
established. Little replacement planting was done. 

Spraying 

The trees and shrubs on some of the more important properties in the 
Eastern and Niagara divisions were sprayed with chemical mixtures for the 
control of insects and fungus diseases. 



36 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 



SECTION HI 



MUNICIPAL WORK 



THE Commission acts in an advisory capacity to the municipalities with 
which it has contracts, and assists municipal officials to purchase, con- 
struct or extend distribution systems. As provided under The Power Com- 
mission Act, all rate adjustments are approved by the Commission, therefore, 
a study of the operating conditions of all utilities is made annually and 
adjustments recommended. 

In rural power districts, the Commission, on behalf of the township 
corporations, operates the rural power systems and distributes electrical 
energy to the customers of the respective corporations in all such rural power 
districts. Consult Section IV of Report. 

SOUTHERN ONTARIO SYSTEM 

During the year 1944, the Southern Ontario system load was influenced 
by two factors; a gradual recession of certain large industrial loads used for 
war purposes, and an increased demand by municipalities. The municipal 
utilities, rural power districts and industrial companies' regular loads increased 
by an average of 88,626 horsepower, or 6.3 per cent, but the recession of 
large industrial war loads tended to reduce the demand with the net result 
that the total average load supplied for all purposes exceeded the 1943 load 
by approximately 50,000 horsepower. 

Owing to the partial lifting of metal restrictions, relating to service to 
rural consumers, and to general growth in use, there was an increase in the 
average rural load of 8,780 horsepower, or 11.75 per cent. Immediate con- 
struction of a number of substations to provide additional capacity is 
proposed. 

On October 1, 1944, the controls instituted by the Dominion Power 
Controller were cancelled, thus restoring for lighting and power customers 
most of their present requirements. 

Engineering Assistance to Municipalities 

General engineering assistance was given to municipalities during the 
year in preparing estimates for expenditures to be made in the post-war 
period. These expenditures include deferred maintenance and rehabilitation 
of the local systems to provide for changes in the demand for power during 
the post-war period. 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 37 

The assistance given relates to the design of more modern street-lighting 
facilities, the preparation of estimates for increased substation facilities, the 
taking on of flat-rate water heaters and the general utilization of power. 

Niagara Division 

Conditions on the Niagara division of this system are indicated by the 
following statements: 

In the Toronto metropolitan area there has been a marked shortage of 
houses and during 1944 a housing programme was advanced which required 
additional substation facilities in most municipalities adjacent to the city. 
In this area also there is evidence of expansion in manufacturing facilities 
and new plants are being planned for the suburbs. Should these plans be 
carried out, important power distribution works, including new high-tension 
stations, will be needed to serve this growing metropolitan area. 

The synthetic rubber industry continued to demand more power and 
during 1944 a large increase was recorded. In the Hamilton area substantial 
expansion of steel-making facilities is under way. 

An analysis of load-line conditions in the western section of the Niagara 
division showed that it would be advantageous to install at Essex trans- 
former station the third 40,000-kva, 13,200-volt synchronous condenser 
ordered at the time the two installed at Burlington transformer station 
were arranged for. Studies show that with the installation of this condenser 
at Essex, approximately straight-line voltage should result at the St. Thomas, 
Kent, Essex and St. Clair transformer stations. This installation at Essex 
will be completed as early as possible in 1945. 

During 1944, the Commission decided to construct a 110,000- volt steel- 
tower line from Kent transformer station to St. Clair transformer station, 
with line automatic, 110,000- volt oil circuit-breakers installed at each end 
of the line. This will provide an alternative route to St. Clair transformer 
station and thus improve service to Sarnia and other municipalities served 
therefrom. Since 1926, power for the St. Clair transformer station has been 
supplied over a 110,000- volt wood-pole line from St. Thomas. This wood- 
pole line will soon require further replacement of wooden structures. The 
new steel-tower line will be installed as early as possible in 1945, and will 
minimize the effect of interruptions for replacement of wooden structures 
on old line. 

Certain municipalities received special engineering advice and assistance 
respecting matters which are more fully referred to below: 

Amherstburg — Plans are being prepared for removing the cedar poles 
from two blocks of the business section of the town, where the street is 
narrow, and building new pole lines on private property behind the stores. 
A new system of street lighting will be provided in the near future. 

Blenheim — Additional transformer capacity was installed to take care 
of additional power loads. 

Bothwell — Additional transformer capacity was installed to take care 
of a new load of 35 horsepower for a grain-shelling plant. 

Brantford — Further additions to the substations were required to 
supply additional power for the manufacture of agricultural machinery and 
munitions. The municipality purchased one 3,000-kva transformer for this 
purpose. 



38 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

Brantford Township — In June 1944, the Township passed a by-law 
to enlarge and alter the boundaries of the voted area. This change will 
necessitate the transfer of a number of rural customers to the Township, 
the rehabilitation of the Township system and the construction of two new 
substations to replace an existing supply from the Brantford Hydro-Electric 
System. 

Burgessville — An additional power bank of 75 kva is being installed 
to provide service for a new power customer. 

Chatham — The plan of rebuilding the oldest pole lines and stringing 
heavier copper conductors was continued. A site was purchased on Grand 
Avenue north of the Thames river for a new substation to supply the north 
section of the city. Certain extensions were made to the primary underground 
system. 

Dresden — The growth of load has made it necessary to increase the 
substation capacity and arrangements are being made for a new substation. 
The construction, after the war, of a new office building is being considered. 

Dundas — A 600-kva transformer was installed on a new station site 
to take care of increased loads, largely for Ancaster Township voted area. 

East York Township — An agreement was made covering the purchase 
from the Commission by the East York Hydro-Electric Commission of the 
five complete substations, each of 1,875-kva capacity. 

Embro — Arrangements have been made to provide an additional 50 
horsepower for an existing power consumer. 

Erieau — A new bank of three 25-kva, 575- volt transformers was installed 
to supply power to a fisheries plant and a ship-building company. 

Gait — To provide for increased power loads, two 750-kva, 13,200 to 
550-volt three-phase transformers were purchased and installed at locations 
close to the larger consumers' plants. 

The arrangement of three 4,000-volt voltage regulators was altered to 
give regulation on feeders instead of on the 4,000-volt substation bus. 

Georgetown — Power transformers were rearranged in the municipality 
to make it possible to supply 250 horsepower of additional load to a large 
power consumer. 

Glencoe — A new bank of three 25-kva, 575-volt transformers was 
installed for a new power load. 

Goderich — The Commission was requested to give engineering assist- 
ance in the preparation of the design of, and estimates for the cost of a new 
substation. 

Guelph — The Guelph Light and Heat Commission will purchase 
additional transformers for a new substation to be constructed in 1945 in the 
northerly section of the city. 

Hamilton — The Hamilton Hydro-Electric System is arranging for 
the utilization of additional power by a large steel plant. This additional 
load will necessitate further extensions to the Commission's 110,000- volt 
stations and transmission lines. 

Harrow — An increased load in a canning plant necessitated rebuilding 
the existing power bank and supplying a heavy underground cable to handle 
the service. 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 39 

Hespeler — Increased load at a large textile plant made it necessary 
to provide larger transformer capacity at the plant. One of the 1,500-kva 
transformers was moved from the local substation to a site near the plant. 

Kingsville — Plans have been requested for the installation of a primary 
underground system for the central part of the town. 

London — It was necessary to extend the 13.2-kv line a distance of 
approximately one-half mile to supply power to a new well for the water- 
works system. 

Merlin — Additional transformer capacity will be installed to handle the 
increased load to a grain and feed mill. 

Milverton — Three 75-kva power transformers were installed to supply 
a flour mill that has not been operating for some years. It has been acquired 
by a company which rehabilitated it, constructed a railway siding and is 
producing crushed grains and stock feed. 

Newmarket — This municipality has been supplied by the Commission 
for a number of years on a fixed-rate contract, taken over with the purchase 
of the Metropolitan Railway Company. 

It is proposed that the town enter into a contract for a supply of Hydro 
power on a cost basis. By-laws will be submitted at the annual elections. 

Niagara-on-the-Lake — Further assistance was given in rebuilding 
the distribution system. 

North York Township — The Township Hydro-Electric Commission 
is arranging for a supply of power to the Sunny brook Military Hospital. 

Oakville — A 4,000-volt, 25-cycle distribution line was constructed for 
the town of Oakville to deliver 25-cycle power from a new substation in the 
municipality to a company for the manufacture of materials for the Armed 
services. The distribution switchboard in the Oakville substation was 
rehabilitated to supply improved service to the Oakville consumers. 

Parkhill — Changes were made in the distribution system and a new 
bank of transformers installed to improve present conditions and provide 
service to a new power customer. 

Ridgetown— This municipality is planning to put up a new office 
building after the war on a lot they now own. 

Riverside — Work was continued on rebuilding jointly used lines in the 
alleys back of the Main street. A new street-lighting system is being 
arranged for. 

St. Thomas — Preliminary plans are being prepared to supply 13.2-kv 
power to a large new industry in the east end of the city. 

Sarnia — The distribution system was extended to supply a number of 
wartime houses. Detailed plans are being made to remove all cedar poles 
from the main business section of the town by running all conductors in an 
underground-duct system. 

Stouffville — Detail plans showing changes to sections of the distribution 
system were submitted to the municipality and actual work will progress 
early in 1945. 

Tillsonburg — Arrangements are being made to supply 160 horsepower 
to a new industry. A portion of the primary line supplying an industrial 
plant at the southern limits of the municipality is being rebuilt with heavier 
conductor to improve the present service and to take care of a possible increase 
in load. 



40 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

Trafalgar Township, Voted Area No. 1 — Facilities were provided 
to supply two 25-cycle power consumers in the township of Trafalgar and 
power was delivered from the new Oakville substation. The work of rehabil- 
itating the Trafalgar Township switchboard in the Oakvile substation, 
was completed. 

Wallaceburg — Following the annexation of part of the adjoining 
township by the town, the local distribution system was extended to supply 
a new canning factory and waterworks-pumping station. Plans are being 
prepared to install a new substation in the industrial section. 

Waterloo— A 1,500-kva, 13,200/2,200- volt, three-phase transformer 
was purchased and is to be installed in the local substation to take care of 
lighting and power increases. A new substation in the industrial section is 
proposed. 

West Lome — Provision is being made to supply an additional block 
of power to an existing manufacturing plant. This will require a re-arrange- 
ment of the transformer banks and changes to the distribution system. 

Windsor — A new primary underground-duct system was installed under 
the railway tracks at Walkerville to supply a new grain elevator. The 
oldest sections of the distribution system are being rebuilt according to plan. 
Work was continued on the substation supplying a large motor plant. 

Woodstock — The 375-kva, three-phase, 550-volt indoor transformer 
at Butler Street substation is being replaced by an outdoor bank of double 
the size. This change provides for a new load of approximately 150 horse- 
power, as well as for increases in present loads. 

York Township — An agreement was entered into with the municipality 
of the Township of York for the sale, by the Commission, of 26.4-kv lines and 
six substations, each of 3,750-kva capacity. 

Georgian Bay Division 

The 60-cycle power supply of the Georgian Bay division is provided by 
twelve hydro-electric generating plants and a frequency-changer station at 
Hanover through which 25-cycle power from the Niagara division is trans- 
formed to 60-cycle power. 

The maximum dependable generating plant capacity available, including 
that through the frequency-changer station, is slightly under 60,000 horse- 
power. No increased capacity was added during 1944 and no additional trans- 
mission lines were constructed. As the peak load established is approximately 
equal to the available capacity, studies were made concerning the best means 
of providing increased power. The possibilities reviewed were: a new fre- 
quency-changer station at Hanover; a 110-kv transmission line from Hanover 
to Ferguson vale, the central distribution point on the Georgian Bay division; 
new generating plant capacity at available sites in the Muskoka area, and a 
110-kv transmission line connection to the Eastern Ontario division. It is 
planned to make additional generating capacity available in 1945. Additional 
transformer capacity has been or will be provided at municipal sub-stations 
where needed. 

Valuations and estimates were made concerning the acquisition of the 
Caledon Electric Company's system which supplies power to approximately 
1,000 customers in municipalities and rural areas in the counties of Peel and 
Wellington. Arrangements were made for the purchase of this system by the 
Commission, to become effective November 1, 1944. 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 41 

Engineering Assistance to Municipalities 

General engineering advice and assistance were given to all municipalities 
of the Georgian Bay division in connection with the operation of local dis- 
tribution systems, and specific engineering assistance concerning the matters 
noted was rendered to the following municipalities, — 

Bradford — The local transformer station capacity was increased from 
300 to 600 kva. Improved Hydro service to the Holland River Marsh 
drainage scheme included the installation of a new 150 horsepower pumping 
plant and distribution line extensions to many new homes and a large cold 
storage plant, which are a direct result of extensive utilization of reclaimed 
land for market gardening. 

Cookstown — The local transformer station capacity was increased 
from 75 to 150 kva. 

Penetanguishene — Extensive alterations to the distribution system 
and to power consumers' transformers and motor equipment, which have 
been in progress during the past three years, were completed during 1944, with 
a noticeable improvement in voltage regulation and power factor conditions. 

Southampton — The local transformer station capacity was increased 
from 150 to 250 kva to provide for the gradual load growth which has taken 
place. 

Thornbury — A new transformer station of 225 kva capacity was installed 
to augment the supply of power obtained from the local hydro-electric gener- 
ating plant. A temporary arrangement for a supply of power was made 
pending a vote of the ratepayers authorizing the town to execute an agree- 
ment with the Commission, involving a power supply from this new station 
on a cost basis. 

Uxbridge — Preliminary investigations were undertaken regarding the 
removal of pole lines from the main street. 

Eastern Ontario Division 

The Bark lake storage reservoir in connection with the Barrett Chute 
plant, was in continuous operation for the entire year, although the reservoir 
was not full until about August. The interchange of power with the 25-cycle 
supply, permits the conservation of storage water on the Madawaska river 
during the summertime to be used later as and when required on the Eastern 
Ontario division. 

There was little change in war industries, most of them continuing to 
operate at full load, and it was not necessary to increase transmission lines 
and station capacities during 1944 on their account. The municipalities, 
however, continue to show a steady upward trend in load. Towards the end 
of the year, a number of airfields decreased their load due to a gradual 
falling off of requirements for the Commonwealth Air Training Plan. 

Distribution stations were increased in capacity in a number of munici- 
palities and rural districts. 

Engineering Assistance to Municipalities 

Certain municipalities received special engineering advice and assistance 
respecting matters which are more fully referred to below: 

Almonte — For many years Almonte has been supplied with power 
from a plant owned by the town, but owing to increase in load beyond the 
capacity of the Municipal plant, negotiations were carried on between the 



42 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

municipality of Almonte and the Commission for an additional power 
supply. On August 21, 1944 the electors voted in favor of entering into a 
cost contract agreement with the Commission for 200 horsepower. It is 
expected that a temporary installation will be made early in 1945. 

Belleville — Estimates have been provided in connection with a new 
3,000-kva station, 44 kv to 4 kv, to serve the western portion of the city. 

Bowmanville — Growth of load necessitated the installation of a 1,000- 
kva transformer in the Bowmanville substation, which brought the capacity 
up to 3,250 kva. 

Millbrook — To serve new industries, an increase in the capacity of 
Millbrook substation was completed early in the year, making three-phase 
power available for the first time. 

Oshawa — Negotiations were completed for the purchase by the Oshawa 
Public Utilities Commission of No. 3 distributing station with a capacity 
of 6,000 kva. This is the first step in the ultimate purchase by Oshawa of the 
three 44 kv to 4 kv distributing stations serving the city. 

Peterborough — Arrangements were made for a supply of power by 
Peterborough Public Utilities Commission to the Quaker Oats Company to 
augment the power obtained by it from its own hydro-electric generating 
station. This power will be supplied at 44,000 volts. 

In order to improve service to the city of Peterborough, improved high- 
tension line switching arrangements are being made. 

Renfrew — For many years Renfrew has been supplied with power from 
two generating plants owned by the town and situated within the municipal 
limits. Due to growth of load beyond the capacity of these two plants, 
negotiations were carried on between the municipality and this Commission 
for an additional supply of power. 

On August 29, the electors of Renfrew voted in favor of entering into a 
cost contract with this Commission for 200 horsepower. It is expected that 
power will be delivered on December 1, 1944. 

THUNDER BAY SYSTEM 



The Thunder Bay system is the only co-operative group in the northern 
portion of the Province served on a cost basis similar to the Southern Ontario 
system. It includes the cities of Port Arthur and Fort William, a voted area 
in Nipigon township known as Nipigon village, and the Thunder Bay and 
Nipigon rural power districts, now served as part of the amalgamated Hydro 
rural service. 

The mining district east of the Nipigon river in the Beardmore and 
Longlac areas, although listed in the past as forming a portion of the Thunder 
Bay system, is virtually a portion of the Northern Ontario Properties and 
will eventually be transferred. In addition to providing for the requirements 
of its own cost municipalities, the Thunder Bay system sells power to the 
Northern Ontario Properties represented by the Rainy River mining district, 
the generating source of power supply being two developments on the 
Nipigon river at Cameron Falls and Alexander, having a combined plant 
capacity of 126,000 horsepower. 

Power supply in the Thunder Bay district is largely concerned with the 
development of forest products and mineral deposits, the two major sources 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 43 

of raw material in northern Ontario. During the year 1944, approximately 
52,000 horsepower was supplied to pulp and paper mills, which was a reduction 
of 7.5 per cent over 1943 loads, and 7,700 horsepower for gold mining oper- 
ations, a reduction of 14.4 per cent over 1943 loads, both of these decreases 
being due to war conditions. 

The cities of Port Arthur and Fort William occupy a unique position 
with respect to the grain trade of Canada, being situated at the head of 
navigation on lake Superior. They have facilities in terminal grain elevators 
for handling the transfer of the major portion of the western-grown grain 
crop from rail to water transportation systems, with storage capacities suf- 
ficient to hold at any one time from 25 to 35 per cent of the annual crop. 
Large blocks of power are required. 

The Port Arthur load in 1944 increased by 13.7 per cent and the Fort 
William load by 4.8 per cent over 1943, due partly to an increase in the 
demand for power supplied for war industries. Load increases occurred in 
1944 over 1943 in Nipigon village of 6.4 per cent, and in the Thunder Bay 
rural power district of 7.9 per cent. 

The total average load sold by the Thunder Bay system for the year 
1944 was 116,333 horsepower, representing an increase of approximately 
14.8 per cent over 1943 conditions. This increase was due to the load taken 
by the Steep Rock Iron Mines in the Rainy River district of the Northern 
Ontario Properties, amounting to 16,972 horsepower, which was first served 
in November 1943 and which, together with municipal load increases, more 
than offset the recession in power demand for the gold mining and pulp and 
paper industries. 

Negotiations were carried on during the year covering power supply 
to a large kraft paper mill at Red Rock adjacent to Nipigon village, which 
will result in further load increases next year of some 8,000 horsepower. This 
load, together with that of the Steep Rock Iron Mine, will result in a total 
load increase of from 25,000 to 30,000 horsepower to be supplied by the 
generating plants of the Thunder Bay system and has necessitated the 
installation of a fourth generating unit of 20,000 horsepower at the Alexander 
generating plant on the Nipigon river. 

Engineering Assistance to Municipalities and Mines 

The local Commissions at Port Arthur, Fort William and Nipigon village 
received assistance concerning the operation and maintenance of their local 
distribution systems and periodic visits were made to all operating mines 
served by the Thunder Bay system. 

NORTHERN ONTARIO PROPERTIES 

The districts served by the Commission on behalf of the Province in 
northern Ontario are the Abitibi, Sudbury, Nipissing, Patricia and Rainy 
River districts. In addition there is included in the Northern Ontario 
Properties the rural power district of Manitoulin Island. 

Power for the first four districts is supplied from ten hydro-electric gener- 
ating plants having a combined normal plant capacity of 288,300 horsepower. 
These supplies in 1944 were supplemented by power purchased from the 
Abitibi Power and Paper Company Sturgeon Falls plant in the Sudbury 
area; from the Thunder Bay system for the Rainy River district, and from 
a local source for the Manitoulin rural power district. 



44 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

Service was provided in sixteen municipalities and mining townsites, 
and to thirty-four gold mining properties — twenty-seven of which were 
under production during 1944 with seven closed down and taking power for 
caret aking purposes only. Power was also supplied to the Canada Northern 
Power Corporation, the majority of whose customers are gold mining proper- 
ties. Service was also given in five rural power districts now forming part of 
the amalgamated Hydro rural power service given throughout Ontario. 

The total average load sold in 1944 was 198,663 horsepower, an increase 
of approximately 1,600 horsepower over 1943. The fact that there is an 
increase is due to the Rainy River district being placed in operation for the 
first time at the beginning of the fiscal year with an average annual load of 
approximately 16,000 horsepower. 

In northern Ontario such communities as exist are mostly dependent 
upon the mines. It is not practicable, therefore, to develop in northern Ontario 
co-operative systems such as form the basis of Hydro operations in southern 
Ontario. For this reason and partly because of the hazards of mining opera- 
tions the publicly owned Hydro properties of northern Ontario are held 
by the Commission in trust for the Province and are operated upon the 
financial responsibility of the Government. Nevertheless, although Hydro 
in northern Ontario is not a co-operative enterprise supplying power at cost 
as it is in southern Ontario, yet on the other hand it is not operated for the 
purpose of supplying a profit to the Government. 

Hydro's purpose in northern Ontario is to encourage the mining industry 
and facilitate the development of new properties by the establishment of 
ample supplies of electric power at a stabilized low cost. 

The rates authorized by the Commission have provided for ample 
reserves and the entire Northern Ontario Properties is in an excellent financial 
condition. 

In the Abitibi district the average load sold in 1944 amounted to 144,916 
horsepower, being a decrease of 9.1 per cent compared with 1943. Power is 
supplied to the mining areas of Porcupine, Kirkland Lake and Matachewan 
and to the International Nickel Company at Sudbury. 

In the Sudbury district the average load sold in 1944 amounted to 22,506 
horsepower, an increase of 6.5 per cent. Power is supplied both to the Inter- 
national and Falconbridge Nickel Companies for mining operations. 

In the Nipissing district the average load sold amounted to 5,524 horse- 
power, an increase of 8.6 per cent. Service is given to the city of North Bay 
and territory adjacent thereto. 

In the Patricia district the average load sold in 1944 amounted to 9,016 
horsepower, a decrease of 17.7 per cent. This district includes the Red lake 
and Pickle mining areas, the town of Sioux Lookout and the Dryden Paper 
Company. 

In the Rainy River district, placed in operation in November 1943, 
there was an average load of 16,154 horsepower. Power supply for this 
district is purchased at a frequency of 60-cycles from the Thunder Bay 
system and is delivered to the Steep Rock Iron Mines and the Ontario- 
Minnesota Pulp and Paper Company at Fort Frances. 

On Manitoulin Island the average load sold in 1944 was 548 horsepower, 
an increase of 18.1 per cent. 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 45 



SECTION IV 

RURAL ELECTRICAL SERVICE 
IN ONTARIO 



MANY important steps were taken by the Commission in 1944 which will 
have far-reaching effects in hastening the time when, throughout Ontario, 
Hydro service in rural districts will be given wherever it is practicable to 
extend distribution lines. 

As from January 1, 1944 the Commission put into operation a compre- 
hensive revision of its rural service which is, without doubt, the greatest 
step forward since the formation of rural power districts in 1920, and the 
subsequent grants-in-aid inaugurated by the Province, in 1921 and extended 
in 1924, in connection with its well established policy of assistance to 
agriculture. 

The chief feature of the new set-up for rural service is the establishment 
for rural districts of a uniform rate structure with a common rate applicable 
to each class of service. Thus, no matter where rural service is given in Ontario 
by the Hydro the rural consumer for the same class of service with the same 
consumption of electricity will pay the same amount on his quarterly bill. 

Although, for convenience of administration, the local rural power 
district areas will be retained as administrative units, the whole rural service 
is amalgamated into one rural power division of Hydro service, with a pooling 
of all revenues and expenses. This rural amalgamation and unification of 
rates is made possible by the financial assistance given by the Province as 
part of its aid to agriculture. The extent and effect of the Province's financial 
assistance with respect to the distribution of power in rural districts should, 
therefore, be clearly understood. 

Provincial Assistance 

The government grant-in-aid of 50 per cent of the capital cost of lines 
and equipment for the supply of power, relates solely to the initial capital 
investment for distribution facilities in rural power districts. 

Having made this grant-in-aid the government further participates, in 
the operation of the province-wide Hydro rural service in that it guarantees 
the Commission against loss due to the fixing of a maximum service charge 
or its reduction or removal.*

The new set-up is a means of apportioning the benefits from provincial 
assistance where they will do most good: namely, to the farmer in sparsely 
settled and less fertile farming districts where, because of these conditions, 
electrical service is necessarily more costly to provide. 

Status of Rural Service in 1944 

In 1944 rural service in Ontario was given through 120 operating admin- 
istrative units which, for convenience, will continue to be referred to as rural 
power districts. Power was delivered to approximately 146,633 rural con- 
sumers, comprising farms and dwellings in various groups. The consumers are 
situated in 434 organized townships; 23 unorganized townships and 121 
police villages, villages and small towns and are served over a network of 
rural primary lines which aggregate 21,023 miles. In addition to the 457 
townships served by rural power districts, 10 townships are served jointly 
by rural power districts and voted areas. 

The restrictions in the use of materials which enter into rural line con- 
struction were continued with broadening modifications during 1944. On

March 28, 1944, the Metals Controller for Canada issued an order, M.C. 23A, 
which allowed, without a permit, the use of not more than 500 pounds of 
non-ferrous metals for any one job in the construction of services to permanent 
residences, and not more than 100 pounds in the case of seasonal residences 
and business premises. Where larger quantities are required, special permits 
from the Metals Controller must be obtained. Other factors, however, 
somewhat offset the easing of the restrictions of the Dominion Government. 
The chief of these was the scarcity of certain materials and equipment; 
another was the shortage of labour due to war-time conditions — most of the 
Commission's line crews had to carry on with greatly reduced numbers. 
For these reasons the Commission was unable to supply service to new con- 
sumers as promptly as otherwise would have been possible. 

During the past year the mileage of rural-line extensions, approved for 
construction in rural power districts in Ontario, was 927 The net increase 
in the number of consumers after allowance for cancellation was 10 292. 
See tables and footnote on page 48.

THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF 



No. 26 



The average aggregate peak load* supplied to all rural Hydro consumers, 
including war industries in rural areas in the Province, amounted to 98,572 
horsepower, an increase of 11.75 per cent over 1943. The delivery of power 
during the winter months, was less than it would have been due to restrictions 
imposed by the Dominion Power Controller, and to voluntary economies by 
consumers. These restrictions were removed on October 1, 1944. 

*Average aggregate peak load is the summation of the twelve monthly peak loads for each 
and all rural power districts, divided by twelve.

NEW UNIFORM RURAL RATE STRUCTURE 

A new uniform rural rate structure, for the sale of energy, was placed 
in effect on January 1, 1944, for all rural Hydro service throughout the 
Province, and replaces the numerous rural rate schedules previously in effect. 

The new energy rates consist, essentially, of a three-step energy charge, 
as follows: 

1. A first block or number of kilowatt-hours of energy consumption in 
the billing period, charged for at 4 cents gross per kilowatt-hour; 

2. A second block or number of kilowatt-hours of energy consumption 
in the billing period, charged for at 1.6 cents gross per kilowatt-hour; 
and 

3. All remaining kilowatt-hours of energy consumption in the billing 
period, charged for at 0.75 cents gross per kilowatt-hour. 

In addition, the service charge in use prior to January 1, 1944, has been 
eliminated in the case of Farm and Commercial service, reduced by 50 per 
cent in the case of Hamlet service and changed to an annual fixed charge 
in the case of Summer service. 

Under the new rate schedules, rural service is now available in four main 
classes. All rural contracts for service carry a symbol consisting of a letter 
indicating the classification of the contract, followed by a number which 
indicates the demand rating or permissible demand in kilowatts contracted 
for. These classes and symbols are: Farm service, F; Hamlet service, H; 
Commercial service, C, and Summer service, S. 

The following is the rate schedule for each main class of service with 
minimum demand rating:

DESCRIPTION OF MAIN CLASSES OF HYDRO RURAL SERVICE 

Beginning January 1, 1944 electrical service is supplied in rural power 
districts under four main classes described below. When the class of service 
which will meet the requirements of the individual consumer has been chosen, 
contracts are executed between the consumer and the corporation of the 
township concerned. 

Farm Service 

Farm service shall be considered to be service to property having lands 
used for the production of food stuff or industrial crops for sale and from 
which a substantial livelihood is obtained. It shall include electrical service 
to all farm buildings and equipment situated on the farm and used for farm 
purposes, including buildings and equipment required for processing the 
products of the customer's farm. 

Service under a single farm contract may be supplied to all dwellings or 
separate domestic establishments situated on the farm property and occupied 
by persons who are regularly engaged in the operation of the farm. 

Additional dwellings or domestic establishments situated on a farm 
property and occupied by persons not regularly engaged in the operation of 
the farm, if served, shall be classed as hamlet contracts and rated accordingly. 
Small properties of five acres and less will be classed as hamlet services except 
under special circumstances which would justify a farm classification. 

The minimum demand of a farm service for billing purposes shall be 
taken as three kilowatts. 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 51 

Hamlet Service 

Hamlet service shall be considered to be service to a domestic establish- 
ment or residence in a rural or in a small suburban community served as 
part of a rural power district. This class shall include isolated rural residences. 

The demand rating of a two-wire hamlet service will be taken as two 
kilowatts and will be limited by a 20-ampere breaker or a 30-ampere fuse. 
Where the hamlet service exceeds two kilowatts, three-wire service shall be 
supplied and the minimum demand for a three-wire service shall be three 
kilowatts. 

Commercial Service 

Commercial service shall be considered to be service to community or 
business premises including schools, churches, public halls, hospitals, hotels, 
public boarding houses, tourist camps, business and professional offices, 
stores, repair shops, garages, gasoline stations, blacksmith and woodworking 
shops, small manufacturing and processing plants, chick hatcheries, sign and 
display lighting and all other premises used for commercial or community 
purposes. 

Single-phase power only will be supplied under a commercial contract. 
Where three-phase power is required, the service will be classed as an "Indus- 
trial power service." 

The minimum demand rating of a commercial contract shall be two 
kilowatts for a two- wire service and three kilowatts for a three- wire service. 

Summer Service 

Summer service is applicable to properties where service is used normally 
only during the summer months and which are not established as the con- 
sumer's permanent residence. This service is not limited to cottages, but 
may include summer hotels, tourist camps, refreshment booths and other 
commercial premises. 

The demand rating of a two-wire summer service will be taken as two 
kilowatts and will be limited to a maximum of a 20-ampere breaker or a 
30-ampere fuse. Where the summer service exceeds two kilowatts, three- 
wire service shall be supplied and the minimum demand for a three-wire 
service shall be three kilowatts. 

FIVE-YEAR PLAN FOR FUTURE RURAL DEVELOPMENT 

A preliminary estimate of the ultimate development of rural service in 
this Province, which can be foreseen at the present time, based on the 
minimum density of two farm contracts per mile of line, indicates that a 
total of 35,080 miles of line would be required to serve a total of 241,205 
consumers, of whom 111,877 would be farm consumers. 

As shown in the following table, 60 per cent of this mileage has already 
been constructed, serving 61 per cent of the total consumers and 55 per cent 
of the farmers:

The following estimates of growth for the next five years will depend 
upon the availability of labour and material and the maintenance of income 
of rural residents at a level which will permit them to invest in .wiring, elec- 
trical equipment and other improvements.

Rural Loans 

Under The Rural Power District Loans Act, 1930, authority was given 
to The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario to finance the installation 
of wiring and the purchase of specified electrical equipment by rural farm 
consumers. 

Owing to the necessity to conserve funds for war purposes this financing 
was discontinued on October 31, 1940. Up to the time 1,776 loans had been 
granted, amounting to $360,852. Details are as given in previous Annual 
Reports. 

To October 31, 1944, 1,761 loans had been repaid in full, either thrcugh 
the maturing of the loan or by being paid in advance by the borrower.

FARM USES FOR ELECTRICITY 

The use made of electrical service by farmers divides itself broadly into 
applications which provide a higher standard of living in the farm home, and 
applications which add to the productive capacity of a farm. Some applic- 
ations, for example, lighting and water pumping, do both. 

Farming is a productive industry and the ability of electrical service 
to provide light, heat and power in a wide range of intensities free from the 
hazards associated with oil or other fuel and the ease with which electricity 
may be controlled, permit applications to farm production problems not 
feasible with any other source of power. 

These applications result in savings in labour, increased production, 
improved quality, prevention of waste, reduced costs and substantial increases 
in earnings. 

To the farm home electricity can bring the same conveniences as are 
enjoyed by urban residents. It eliminates the drudgery of many household 
tasks, improves health and comfort and, through the radio, furnishes enter- 
tainment, news, discussions of current topics and market reports, all of which 
bring greater contentment in the rural way of life. 

In building up his electrical equipment to receive the maximum benefit 
from Hydro rural service, the farmer should keep a nice balance between 
appliances for use in the home and appliances which will add to the productive

advantage 



capacity of his farm. It is especially desirable that following the installation 
of lighting service in the home and outbuildings his early concern should be 
to purchase equipment which will result in cash returns. 

Lighting Service 

Electric lighting is safe, convenient and reduces the fire hazard to a 
minimum. It adds comfort and attractiveness to the farm home. In the 
barn and other buildings it saves time and prevents accidents while doing 
chores. 

In productive operations it is used in the poultry laying house to supple- 
ment daylight during the winter months, thus increasing egg production 
during a period when prices are highest. 

In floriculture lighting may be used to promote or retard the flowering 
of certain flowering plants in order to meet the demand of special occasions. 

Special applications of lighting include insect traps, infra-red lamps for 
brooders and ultra-violet lamps to improve the health of poultry and other 
stock.

Heating Service 

The safety and ease of control of electricity as a source of heating has 
found many applications. In the home it makes possible many of the familiar 
appliances, such as irons, toasters, hot plates, electric ranges and water 
heaters, all of which add to the comfort and convenience of the home. The 
ease of automatic control of electric heat has found application in incubators 
and poultry brooders, where accurate control of temperature is necessary. 

Water heaters and dairy sterilizing equipment assist in maintaining a 
high quality of milk production. Small capacity heaters are used to maintain 
drinking water at suitable temperature for poultry, with resultant increases 
in egg production during the winter months. It also finds application in 
brooders for pigs and lambs, preventing loss of these animals during cold 
weather and effecting very substantial savings and increased earnings. 

In horticulture electric soil heating is used for the early germination and 
propagation of seeds and plants and their protection against frost.

Power for Electric Motors 

Electric motors find many uses in replacing manual effort. A quarter- 
horsepower motor can operate any machine that can be operated by hand, 
thus effecting savings in time and effort. 

In the home motors make possible washing machines, ironing machines, 
vacuum cleaners, fans, furnace blowers, water pumps and refrigerators and 
the new cold storage home locker for the preservation and storage of perish- 
able foods in quantity Thus, motors contribute towards making the farm 
home equal in comfort and convenience to the urban home. 

In farming operations electric motors are used for grinding grain and the 
operation of feed mixers, effecting substantial cash savings. They are also 
used for pumping water for stock and the operation of milking machines, 
cream separators and milk coolers. These result in very substantial savings 
in labour, and increases in production, and permit the handling of larger 
herds, effecting increases in farm earnings. 

Portable utility motors of various sizes find many applications, such as 
wood cutting, hoisting hay, elevating grain, seed cleaning and, in the work- 
shop, motor-driven grinders and other equipment provide facilities for main- 
taining farm equipment in repair and facilitate the construction of various 
pieces of useful equipment in connection with farming operations.

*See footnote to previous table. 

fin the period 1937 to 1940, there was an increase in the statistical average revenue per 
kilowatt-hour and a decrease in the statistical average monthly consumption per consumer. 
Actually there was a great increase in the use of electricity by nearly all individual Hydro con- 
sumers and a corresponding decrease to each consumer in the average cost per kilowatt-hour. 
But due to the tremendous growth at this time in new consumers, who for the first few years are 
not equipped to use large quantities of electricity each month, the smaller monthly consumption 
of the new consumers when averaged with the increased use of the older consumers produced per 
consumer averages which obscured the true trends of individual growth in use, and, individual 
reductions in costs.

SECTION V 



PROMOTIONAL AND WAR SERVICES 



BECAUSE of war conditions, load building activity, except as directly 
related to war industry, was not possible during the year. Public 
relations and educational work received special attention and further studies 
of Hydro and municipal growth were made in order to lay the foundation for 
the planning of post-war promotion programmes. 

Advertising and publicity were largely of the informative and educa- 
tional type. A variety of advertisements were published through the medium 
of 226 papers and provided about 3,000 messages to the public. Assistance 
was given to Hydro utilities in the preparation of advertising material. 



Rural Activities 

Early in 1944 following the amalgamation of the rural districts and the 
adoption of a uniform rural rate structure, a large proportion of the Com- 
mission's advertising was used to explain the changes in rural rates and service 
classifications. Later in the year a pamphlet entitled " Hydro on the Farm" 
was issued in connection with a special radio broadcast by the National 
Farm Radio Forum. This broadcast was made over the National network 
and copies of the pamphlet were sent to members of the Forum in Ontario. 
A second issue of 20,000 copies was printed to meet popular demand and 
distributed to agricultural organizations and individuals throughout the 
Province. 



Ontario Schools 

A safety poster, prepared in co-operation with the Ontario Safety League, 
was distributed to all schools in the Province. This was followed by a school 
book cover for use by the children giving pictorial information about the 
Hydro system. This school book cover was well received and almost 800,000 
were distributed. The use of the Commission's motion pictures for educa- 
tional purposes was a prominent feature of the 1944 programme in both 
public and secondary schools. In all this educational work the Hydro utilities 
and the municipal commissions have been very co-operative. 



64 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 



Industrial Plants 

Technical assistance to industrial plants in the effective use of available 
power was a prominent feature of the year's work. Approximately 200 
industries were visited and power surveys made in 30 plants. Recommend- 
ations were made resulting in new and interesting applications. The use of 
Infra-red heating in novel and efficient ways was greatly enlarged. 

Enquiries from several firms seeking industrial sites in the Province 
were received and information on the supply of power and other features 
were supplied to them. Looking forward to the post-war period a brochure 
entitled ''Electric Power Supply in Strategic Ontario" was prepared and is 
now being distributed, particularly in Great Britain and the United States. 
This brochure explains the availability and the widespread use of electrical 
service in Ontario; it portrays the opportunities for industrial development 
and indicates the many advantages of Ontario as a place in which to live 
and work and play. 



Motion Pictures 

A new 16 mm. sound picture in colour, entitled "The Romance of a 
River" was produced. This tells the story of the Ogoki diversion and the 
DeCew Falls development which utilizes in part the additional water made 
available all down the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence river waterway as a result 
of the diversion. Although copies of this film were not obtained until rather 
late in the year it has been shown to a large number of schools and to 170 
meetings in various places. In addition, copies of the film were supplied to 
Canada's armed forces overseas and to Ontario House in London. 



Lighting Service 

The lighting service of the Commission was in great demand during the 
year. Three hundred and fifty surveys of schools, offices and industrial 
premises were made and in a large number of cases the recommendations of 
the Commission were followed. There is evidence of a greater interest in 
better lighting in schools and during 1944 the advice of the Commission was 
requested and given to administrators of more than 200 schools. When 
equipment becomes more readily available the interest in improved school 
lighting should prove helpful to educational efficiency and react favourably 
to Hydro revenues. 



Priority Problems 

Due to somewhat lessened restrictions and to greater stabilization of 
methods less difficulty was experienced in procuring materials and equipment 
and in obtaining necessary permits for extensions. Routine work in connection 
with permits for gasoline, oil, tires and food rationing for construction camps 
has been systematized on a satisfactory basis.

SECTION VI 



HYDRAULIC ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION 



ACTUAL construction of major power projects during 1944 was limited 
to an extension of the Alexander power development on the Nipigon 
river. Various items in connection with the completion of the 25-cycle plant 
at DeCew Falls required attention and the Niagara river remedial weir 
was finished, work ceasing in September. Surveys were made of undeveloped 
sites on the Aguasabon and Madawaska rivers, those on the latter river being 
for the purpose of refining the plans for developments in a comprehensive 
scheme outlined before the Barrett Chute plant was built. 

Renewals, repairs and improvements were carried out on various 
structures for the co-operative systems and Northern Ontario Properties. 



SOUTHERN ONTARIO SYSTEM 
DeCew Falls Development 

The completion of minor items on the 25-cycle power plant, which came 
into service in September 1943, required attention and tests and investigations 
were made in connection with the hydraulic operation of the plant. 

The plant draws its water supply from lake Erie, via the Welland ship 
canal, and this water forms part of that diverted for generation of power 
under international agreements. It is therefore necessary to measure con- 
tinuously the diversion of water through the intakes of the plant and to 
submit the records of diversion to the International Niagara Board of 
Control. The Department of Transport is also interested because of the 
conveyance of the diverted water through the ship canal. To obtain these 
records the new intake, where almost all of the diversion takes place, was 
equipped with instruments to give a continuous record of flow /through each 
of the six intake tubes, and a summator which automatically records the 
total flow through all of the tubes in operation at any time. An experimental 
investigation of the tubes was made, preliminary to their design, by means 
of a scale model in the Hydraulic Laboratory of the University of Toronto 
and the actuating elements of the flow recorders were designed on the basis 
of the indications of the tests on the model. Field measurements by current 
meter were made in the spring of 1944 in the intake canal to check the accuracy 
of the flow recorders. These measurements were made by members of the 



66 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

technical staffs of the International Board, the Department of Transport 
and the Commission and checked satisfactorily the rating of the intake tubes 
derived from the tests of the model. 

Investigations in field and office have proceeded in connection with the 
enlargement of DeCew Falls plant by the additon of another unit similar 
in size to the first. This will involve improvement in connecting channels 
in the reservoir, enlargement of the tailrace channel through Twelve Mile 
creek and the Second Welland canal to lake Ontario, and revision of road and 
rail crossings over the new channels. Design of channels and structures is 
proceeding in order that the second unit when required may be installed 
without delay. 

Protective measures have been taken to cope with the large quantities 
of weeds that enter the intake of the new plant for a few weeks in the late 
summer. The weeds grow in the Welland Ship canal and are drawn into the 
intake in much larger amounts than formerly, because of the increased diver- 
sion of water through the intake. 

Niagara River Power Plants 

A revision of the rating tables used for computing diversions of water 
at the Niagara river plants was completed and submitted to the Inter- 
national Niagara Board of Control for approval. The revisions eliminated 
some minor inconsistencies in the rating tables formerly in use, and presented 
the ratings in a new form, for use in the control rooms, where records of 
diversion of water are computed. The tables received the approval of the 
Board and their use began on November 7, 1944. 

Inspections were made of conduits at the Ontario Power plant and the 
tailrace tunnel at the Toronto Power plant. The tailrace tunnel was found to 
be in good condition, as also were conduits 2 and 3 at the Ontario Power plant. 
In No. 1 conduit at the Ontario plant, inspections made more than twenty 
years ago showed some of the lower plates distorted and repairs were made. 
Recent inspections having shown a considerable and rapid deterioration in 
the condition of the plates, an examination of the underside of the pipe is 
being made by means of a shaft and tunnel, in order to plan remedial 
measures. 

The distributors in four 13,000 horsepower turbines at the Toronto 
Power plant were redesigned, and the new parts are being installed. The 
units, in which these changes are now made, are those which came into 
service when the plant commenced operating more than 35 years ago. 

Niagara River Remedial Weir 

In October 1943, work on the weir was being pressed vigorously to com- 
plete the season's programme before winter. Reference was made in the last 
Annual Report to changes in design to increase the stability of the component 
parts of the weir when subjected to the action of large ice floes. The top 
and upstream surfaces of the weir in the original design were to be faced 
with smooth uniform slabs of rock to assure free movement of ice over the 
weir. Inspection and sounding in the summer of 1943 indicated that the 
smooth facing slabs, not being interlocked with the core of the weir, had a

tendency to slide when subjected to pressure from ice floes. Accordingly, 
in the revised design, large pieces of rock weighing from eight to ten tons 
in weight were used to form a protective toe along the upstream face of the 
weir and pieces from five to ten tons were placed where necessary on the 
surface of the weir. 

When the work ceased in January 1944, besides rock placing, soundings 
had been made over the whole surface of the weir. The records of these 
soundings were compared with the records of a second complete set made in 
the early summer of 1944 and this comparison, along with records of water 
levels, was used to plan the additional work required to bring the weir to 
completion. During the 1944 season, 2,834 tons of rock were placed in the 
weir and a very thorough job done on protective riprap along the Canadian 
shore. The records of water levels indicate that the weir has increased water 
levels upstream to the extent originally proposed and appreciably improved 
conditions for generation of power on both sides of the river. It has also 
increased the flow over the American falls, thereby improving their appearance. 

Eastern Ontario Division 

Maintenance work on plants in the Eastern Ontario division included 
the replacement of the wood stave pipe line at the High Falls plant on the 
Mississippi, and the repair of pitting on the turbine runner at Hanna Chute. 

Studies and preliminary layouts were made of developments on the 
Madawaska river at Claybank and at Mountain Chute. A small survey 
party has been placed in the field to collect additional data at the sites at 
Claybank and Stewart ville. The general scheme of development on the 
river was outlined before the Barrett Chute plant was built and the present 
surveys, which include investigations of subsurface conditions by test pits 



68 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

and collections of records of water level, are for the purpose of improving 
and refining the general scheme. Some of the upstream sites among those 
included in the earlier scheme have been surveyed in greater detail. 

THUNDER BAY SYSTEM 

The iron mining project at Steep Rock lake required a supply of powei 
for the pumping plant at the lake and for replacement of power formerly 
supplied by the Moose Lake Power plant on the Seine river, which had to be 
taken out of service because of the mining development. Power for mining 
operations and for equipment at an ore dock at Port Arthur will be required 
in the future. These new loads in what is now known as the Rainy River 
district of Northern Ontario Properties are supplied by the Thunder Bay 
system and have taxed the present capacity of generating sources. It became 
necessary therefore to increase the capacity of the power plants on the 
Nipigon river. 

When the Alexander development was built it was designed to accom- 
modate four units, of which three were installed. The fourth unit, now being 
installed, will effect a balance between the Alexander and Cameron Falls 
plants, in so far as water requirements are concerned. Their generating 
capacities are, of course, different, as the head at Cameron Falls is greater 
than at Alexander. 

Since these plants were built, a new situation regarding water supply 
has come into being. Additional supplies have become available by the 
placing in service of the Ogoki Diversion project in July 1943. The additional 
water supply available from this source is sufficient to enable the existing 
plants to be operated at their full capacity at load factors above those which 
are expected to exist for primary loads. 

The Alexander plant, as originally designed, was to have four units, 
the turbines to be rated at 18,000 horsepower, each under a head of 60 feet. 
Of these, three were installed and came into service toward the end of 1930. 
The headworks for the fourth unit were built at the same time and com- 
pletion of the plant involved only a minor amount of dewatering to permit the 
excavation for the substructure and the construction of the draft tube. 

The Ogoki diversion increased the water available for generation of 
power on the Nipigon river by about fifty per cent. The present installation 
and the current extension of the Alexander plant are of sufficient size to use 
the increased water supply, but only at a very high load factor and there is 
justification for further extensions at Cameron Falls and Alexander to 
increase the capacities of these plants to a size much greater than projected 
in the original designs. This is taken into consideration to a certain degree 
by the choice of a fourth unit at Alexander larger in size than the three 
existing units. The new turbine is of the fixed blade propellor type, rated 
at 19,000 horsepower, under a head of 58 feet, at 150 revolutions per minute. 
The setting will be similar to that of the existing units, the headworks, 
already built, being identical in most respects. Minor changes in the sub- 
structure from the original design have been made to provide for the dif- 
ference in type and capacity of the new turbine which requires that it be 
set four feet lower than the others.

Cofferdam and temporary housing for installation of unit No. 4. Log chute and discharge from

Active construction of the extension commenced in March 1944. The 
tailbay cofferdam was completed and dewatering commenced in May. 
Excavation was completed by August and the substructure was approaching 
completion at the end of the fiscal year. The unit is expected to be ready 
to carry load in October 1945. 

Aguasabon River Survey 

A survey was made on the power site near the mouth of the Aguasabon 
river about sixty miles east of the Nipigon river. The water diverted from 
the Kenogami river, through the Long lake control dam, passes down the 
Aguasabon river to lake Superior. This diverted water enhances the value 
of the power site near the mouth of the river, giving the site a potential 
capacity of about 20,000 horsepower. A development here, connected by 
transmission lines to the Nipigon river plants, would be in a strategic position 
to supply power to prospective customers in the area, or alternatively could 
add to the resources of the Thunder Bay system for use in other parts of 
the district. 

The power site on the river is near its outlet into lake Superior where, 
in a distance of about a mile, there is a fall of about 225 feet through a series 
of cascades and rapids. 

While the complete development of the site at the full head is feasible, 
there are locations available for a partial development at moderate cost to 
supply local needs. Such a development would, of course, be replaced by 
the full head development, when the requirements of local or system loads 
demanded it. 

A survey party was placed in the field in the summer of 1944 and col- 
lected topographic and hydraulic data and also investigated rock elevations 
by boring on sites of proposed structures. Work is proceeding on plotting 
the results of the survey and studies of layouts. 



70 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

Black Sturgeon Dam 

The maintenance of high storage levels on lake Nipigon for a greater 
percentage of time and the proposal to use the upper part of the permissible 
range of storage provided for in the original license of occupation made it 
desirable to improve the Black Sturgeon dam at the south end of lake Nipigon. 
This dam closes a low contour between the lake and the headwaters of the 
Black Sturgeon river, the natural ground level being slightly lower than 
maximum storage level. Reconstruction of the dam involved stripping 
at the base of the old dam to a sound boulder foundation, raising and widening 
the fill to increase the stability of the structure, extending the dam laterally 
to meet higher contours and placing riprap on the face. 

Long Lake and Ogoki Diversions 

These diversions are related to both the Southern Ontario and Thunder Bay 
systems. A rating of the outflow at the Long lake control dam was carried 
out by the Dominion Water and Power Bureau, assisted by members of the 
Commission's staff, in June, 1944. The ratings are made by current meter 
and, due to log driving during the summer and fall, only brief periods are 
available for rating measurements. Stage-discharge relations have been 
developed for the main sluice channel and the log sluice and from these, 
continuous records of discharge are secured for transmission to the Inter- 
national Niagara Board of Control. 

The ratings made in June indicated that the stage-discharge relations 
have become stabilized and only minor changes in the rating curves were 
necessary. 

Partial ratings were also made at a point some miles downstream from 
the control dam on the Ogoki project. A metering station has been established 
and other provision made for the current meter measurement. In the 
meantime, records of diversion are computed from readings of water levels 
at the control dam. 

HYDRAULIC INVESTIGATIONS 

A review of stage-discharge relations on the St. Lawrence river was 
continued. 

Routine work carried on included the collection of hydrometric data 
throughout the Province in co-operation with Dominion Government 
departments, the supervision of operation of storage basins, assistance to 
municipalities on special engineering problems and co-operation with public 
and private organizations. 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 71 



SECTION VII 



ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION 



A 



S in preceding war years, construction work was governed by the require- 
ments of the war economy. 



In general, the programme of new generation, high-voltage transmission, 
and transformation, to provide increased power supplies for war industry, 
was largely completed in the earlier years of the war. In 1944 the main 
provision for increased generating capacity was in the Thunder Bay system, 
where work is now proceeding on the installation of a fourth unit at Alexander. 

The immediate problem has been the effective distribution of available 
power supplies to accommodate the changing demands for war activities, and, 
at the same time, meet essential civilian power requirements. This has 
involved much planning and many undertakings, successfully carried out 
under conditions made more difficult by the shortage of both labour and 
materials, and with a limited engineering staff. 

Extensive studies relating to supplies of power in the post-war era have 
been continued, in order that extensions and rehabilitations in all areas 
served can be made in an orderly manner, to dovetail into what may be called 
a master plan. The studies include various possibilities of load growth in 
the next ten to fifteen years, and have been facilitated by a maximum use 
of the Commission's network calculator. 

As part of the plan already taking form it was decided to install at Essex 
transformer station a 40,000-kva synchronous condenser which was purchased 
at the same time as the two synchronous condensers installed at Burlington 
transformer station, and work on this project is in hand. 

Several communication circuits, especially in the important Toronto- 
Burlington-Niagara Falls area have been improved to facilitate the operation 
of carrier channels. Terminal equipment for the telemetering of power 
outputs at the Niagara river plants to a new power supervisors' office in 
the Administration building at Toronto is being installed. This telemetering 
service will be extended to enable the power supervisors to make the best 
use of available power. 

At the end of this section is given a tabulation of the transformer and 
distributing stations where major increases in transformer capacity were 



72 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

put into service. Similar increases in capacity are being made at a number of 
other stations. In most cases, alterations or additions to station structures, 
switching, metering, and station protection have been involved. In some 
cases, temporary arrangements for the delivery of additional power were 
necessary. 

Some six miles of new 26,400-volt and 44,000-'volt transmission lines 
were constructed and placed in service, and approximately seven miles of 
existing lines were rebuilt or relocated. One hundred and twelve miles of 
obsolete transmission circuits were removed with, in some cases, their sup- 
porting structures. Four hundred and seventy-six steel towers, erected in 
1910 and 1911, were taken down and largely sold for remelting. 

In selected cases, where it appeared that the service given would be 
most useful in food production, distribution lines in rural power districts have 
been extended, and transformers added to existing lines. The extent of the 
work was limited by the control of essential materials and scarcity of labour. 
A summary at the end of this section shows the mileage of lines built, and the 
number of consumers served. 

Engineering and other assistance was rendered to several municipalities, 
large power customers, and war industries, in connection with the purchase 
and installation of new equipment, changes and additions to existing stations, 
and the design and construction of new stations. 

The Inspection department received assistance in connection with the 
approval, under the statute, of electrical installations over 600 volts. 

Miscellaneous work in hand includes the construction of an office building 
at Stoney Creek, for the Saltfleet rural power district; and alterations to a 
purchased building at Sudbury, for the Sudbury rural power district. Partly 
as a fuel conservation measure, a number of the older type operators' and 
patrolmen's houses in various parts of the Province have been insulated 
against loss of heat. Many of these houses are in isolated areas and subject 
to extreme climatic conditions. 

In addition to the work detailed below, a number of relay, switching and 
metering changes were made, to improve service security, and promote 
more efficient use of power. 



SOUTHERN ONTARIO SYSTEM 

The first 40,000-kva synchronous condenser at Burlington transformer 
station was placed in service on January 17,1944, and the second on April 
17, 1944. The permanent control building was placed in service during 
September, 1944. The service building, completion of which was delayed due 
to war conditions, has been reinstated on the construction programme, and 
will be completed during 1945. The third 40,000-kva synchronous condenser, 
purchased at the same time as the above two condensers, and the manufacture 
of which is now nearing completion, is to be installed at Essex transformer 
station, as described in the following paragraph.

In order to improve voltage conditions in the western area of the Niagara 
division, and at the same time provide for more efficient transmission of 
power to this area, authorization has been given and plans are being prepared 
for the installation of a 40,000-kva, 13,200-volt horizontal synchronous 
condenser, with automatic starting and control equipment, at Essex trans- 
former station. This necessitates the stepping down of the bus voltage from 
26,400 to 13,200 volts; and two 20,000-kva 3-phase transformers were 
purchased for this purpose. The plans provide for the replacement of the 
indoor portion of the 26,400-volt bus and switching equipment by modern 
outdoor equipment in order to remove service hazards associated with 
existing indoor equipment, and for the installation of a new control room in 
the space made available by the removal of the 26,400-volt indoor equipment. 



The transfer of the municipal and industrial loads in the Welland area 
from the 46,000-volt supply out of Niagara transformer station to the 26,400- 
volt feeders out of Crowland and Atlas Steel transformer stations, which was 
started in 1943, was completed during the year. The three remaining 46,000- 
volt transformer banks at Niagara transformer station were disposed of, 
completing the removal of the four banks mentioned in last year's report. 
The removal of these transformer banks makes possible much needed improve- 
ments to this 30-year old station, which will eliminate operating hazards 
and provide better service conditions. Work to this end is now in progress, 
comprising in general the rearrangement of the 12,000-volt switching equip-

Due to the growth of the interconnected capacity on the system, the 
13,200-volt oil circuit-breakers at Preston transformer station, and the 
44,000-volt breakers at Heely Falls and Seymour generating stations were 
replaced with breakers of higher interrupting capacity. The breakers at 
Seymour generating station were placed outdoors, and a switching structure 
installed. At a number of other stations 110,000- volt oil circuit-breakers 
were either replaced, or the interrupting capacity increased by equipping 
them with modern interrupting devices. 

Increases in station capacity are under way at Aldershot, Bowman ville, 
Consecon, Cookstown, Dublin, Midhurst, Milverton, Willowdale, Win- 
chester and Woodbridge distributing stations; and at the stations supplying 
Canada Cement Company (Belleville, Lehigh), and Howard Smith Paper 
Mills. The capacity of Perth rural station is being increased, and this station 
will supply customers formerly fed from Balderson distributing station, 
which is to be dismantled. 



New step-down stations were completed for the Department of Munitions 
and Supply at de Havilland Aircraft of Canada, Ltd., (supplementing the 
power supplied through the original station), and at Malton. The permanent 
2,000-kva stand-by station constructed for the Polymer Corporation at 
Sarnia was placed in service on February 6, 1944, and the temporary station 
supplying power for construction purposes was dismantled. A new 600-kva, 
26,400/4,000-volt outdoor distributing station is under construction at

Oakville, and will be in service in November, 1944. A new distributing station 
was constructed at Tweed, for the supply of power to the south-western 
portion of Sulphide rural power district. 

Plans have been prepared, and the transformer purchased, for the 
construction of a 1,000-kva, 44,000/2,400- volt distributing station for the 
town of Almonte, to be initially operated at 750 kva, 33,000/2,400-volts.

has recently contracted for the purchase of power. Preliminary engineering 
work was done for the supply of power to the town of Renfrew, which also 
operates its own generating plants, but is planning to take power from the 
Commission; and for a proposed new sub-station for the Belleville Hydro- 
Electric System. 

Engineering assistance, commenced in 1942, in connection with the 
construction of the Kingston Public Utilities Commission's new 6,000-kva, 
44,000/2,400-volt municipal station No. 2, was completed. Engineering 
assistance was rendered to the Hespeler Hydro-Electric Commission in con- 
nection with the construction of a new 1,500-kva, 13,200/4, 000- volt step- 
down station; and to the Peterborough Utilities Commission, in connection 
with proposed high and low-voltage switching changes in its municipal 
sub-station, to supply 44,000-volt power to a new 3,000-kva sub-station 




BURLINGTON TRANSFORMER STATION— CONTROL ROOM 
From this room embodying latest improvements is controlled the 220,000- and 110,000-volt 
power supplied to a large area of southwestern Ontario. The built-in lighting system gives 
adequate illumination on instrument board and control desks with a minimum of 

glare and shadows

HEAVY DISTRIBUTION SERVICE TO NORTH AMERICAN 
CYANAMID LIMITED 

A 12,000-volt, 3-phase circuit, each phase having two 500,000 circular mil 
stranded copper conductors in parallel. At right a ninety-degree angle 
structure made from salvaged 46,000-volt towers supporting six 12,000- 
volt, 3-phase circuits of 500,000 circular mil stranded copper conductor 



being erected by a large power consumer. Rehabilitation work and station 
changes were carried out at Oakville municipal station for the Oakville 
Water and Light Commission. 

An investigation was made of the properties of the Caledon Electric 
Company, and of the arrangements which would be necessary for the supply 
of power to the company's customers in the event of its properties being 
purchased by the Commission. 

Additional 13, 200- volt feeder and switching equipment was installed at 
Hamilton-Gage transformer station, to supply Dominion Foundries and 
Steel Company. 

Ground reactors are being installed at Port Colborne transformer station 
and Welland distributing station to improve the station relay protection. 
Work is proceeding on the installation of a grounding transformer at Lindsay

distributing station to effect a balance of voltages and relieve interference 
with communication circuits. 

To provide for the transfer of the district operating centre from London 
transformer station to St. Thomas transformer station, facilities added at the 
latter station include an extension to the control room and the installation of 
carrier telephone terminal equipment. 

Following a fire on January 5, 1944, at Youngs Point generating station, 
this station was dismantled. 



THUNDER BAY SYSTEM 

Work is proceeding on the installation of a fourth unit at Alexander 
generating station, in an extension to the building. The generator will have 
a capacity of 15,000 kva, and is scheduled to be in service during the fall of 
1945. Like the first three units, this fourth unit will be controlled from 
Cameron Falls generating station. 




TRACTOR EQUIPPED FOR POLE REMOVALS 

The crane and equipment attached to tractor were designed and built by 
the Commission's construction department largely from salvaged 
materials. In addition to its primary purpose this machine is in frequent 
use for loading and unloading poles, reels of cable, large distribution 
transformers and other heavy materials and equipment 



78 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

Work has been commenced on the construction for the Brompton 
Pulp and Paper Company of a temporary 600-kva, 2,300/22,000-volt step-up 
station at the customer's Nipigon mill, and on a temporary 22,000/2,300-volt 
step-down station of similar capacity at the customer's Red Rock mill. By 
the use of an existing transmission line, these stations will supply construction 
power to the customer's Red Rock mill. The stations will be in service early 
in December, 1944. 

Arrangements have been made for the installation of a 110,000-volt 
bus-tie breaker at Port Arthur transformer station. The work is expected 
to be completed early in 1945, and will enable maintenance work to be done 
on the other oil circuit-breakers without interruptions to service. 

The capacity of Port Arthur distributing station is being increased 
by the installation of a 200-kva, 22,000/6,900-volt transformer. The bank 
of three 150-kva transformers at Rosslyn distributing station is being replaced 
by a bank of three 333-kva transformers, increasing the station capacity by 
550 kva. 

NORTHERN ONTARIO PROPERTIES 



Abitibi District 

A 26, 400- volt feeder was constructed between Timmins transformer 
station and the new receiving station of Hollinger Consolidated Gold Mines. 

Nipissing District 

At Nipissing generating station a rearrangement of switching equipment 
and relocation of switchboard are being made to improve operating security. 

Patricia District 

A 100-kva, single-phase, 44,000/2,400-volt transformer was installed at 
Gold Eagle Gold Mines station for the supply of power to Cottage Cove 
townsite. This townsite was formerly supplied through one of the company's 
transformers; these have been removed due to the closing down of the mine. 

Rainy River District 

The 110,000-volt wood-pole transmission line between Rainy River 
switching station at Port Arthur and Moose Lake switching station, and the 
two new switching stations, were placed in service on November 28, 1943, 
initiating the supply of power to Steep Rock Iron Mines, Ltd., and also to 
the Ontario-Minnesota Pulp and Paper Company, Ltd., to replace output 
from the company's Moose Lake generating station. The converted generators 
at the company's plant, put out of commission by the diversion of Seine river, 
were placed in service as synchronous condensers on February 23, 1944. 
To provide adequate facilities for patrolling the transmission line, which runs 
through sparsely settled country, five patrolmen's houses are being constructed. 

A new 450-kva, 44, 000/8, 000- volt distributing station is being con- 
structed at Steep Rock Iron Mines for the supply of power to Atikokan 
townsite. The station is expected to be in service early in 1945.

SECTION VIII 

RESEARCH— TESTING— INSPECTION 
PRODUCTION AND SERVICE 



THE Laboratories continued to assist in the war programme by research 
studies, investigation, inspection and testing of materials and equipment 
for the Canadian government and the armed services. Research also was 
carried on with regard to important problems of operation of the Commission's 
systems, including investigations of electrical insulation and the safety of 
farm wiring, conductor materials and joints, radio interference, preservation 
of wooden and concrete structures, paints and other protective coatings, 
insulating and lubricating oils, domestic water heating, cold storage for 
farms and distribution of light in school classrooms. 

Factory inspection and witness testing has included large rotating equip- 
ment for the Commission's power systems, the checking of parts before 
assembly being an essential part of this work. 

The Approvals laboratory, functioning as agent of the Canadian 
Standards Association, has co-operated with the Electrical Inspection 
department in testing domestic and other appliances and fittings to ensure 
as far as possible safety in homes and factories. 

The Production and Service department has continued operation of the 
Commission's machine shop and garage, and the maintenance of the large 
fleet of trucks, the volume of work having increased appreciably during the 
year. 

RESEARCH AND TESTING LABORATORIES 

Research 

The activity of the Laboratories in research problems of the Com- 
mission increased in certain branches, and some investigations are extended 
to the field where actual operating conditions are studied. Municipal Hydro 
utilities are given assistance with their local problems. 

Electrical Insulation 

A large amount of work was done for the inspection boards of Army, 
Navy and Air departments, for the Department of Munitions and Supply 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 85 

and for manufacturers on the insulation of assembled apparatus under extreme 
conditions of high and low temperature and humidity. 

Investigation of the conditions of insulation of farm wiring led to dis- 
cussion as to the best means of supplying rural consumers. As a result 
changes in materials or circuits may be suggested to increase safety of farm 
personnel and animals. 

Several cases of breakdown in buried cable were investigated and new 
methods of detecting faults were studied. 

Lightning current recorders were installed at Burlington transformer 
station for the purpose of studying lightning conditions. 

Vibration of Line Conductors 

For many years investigations concerned with the suppression of vibra- 
tions in transmission line conductors have been carried on. This work has 
now resolved itself into studies of the endurance characteristics of conductor 
materials and certain connector assemblies. In 1944, fatigue tests were made 
on rural tie lines. 

A report covering the fatigue properties of galvanized steel wire was 
prepared as a basis for ensuring high quality wire for ground cables. 

Methods of repairing steel-reinforced aluminum conductor were tested 
and an improvement found in repair methods for telephone lines. Attention 
also was given to two clamping devices which permit changes being made 
on energized lines. 

Treatment of Wooden Transmission Structures 

A large number of poles were inspected in the field, to study the effective- 
ness of various preservatives and methods of treatment. 

Laboratory tests were conducted on pentachlorphenol in treatment 
of eastern cedar poles by the sand-creosote-collar method. Treated samples 
were submitted to the Forest Products Laboratories in Ottawa and the 
Consolidated Treating Company's laboratory in Minneapolis for toxicity 
tests. From the investigation, this chemical was found to be an excellent 
preservative for use in a sand collar for ground-line treatment. 

The problem of obtaining substitute woods for poles and crossarms has 
been studied in view of the shortage of woods usually employed. 

Arrangements have been made to construct special laboratory equipment 
in order to conduct treating experiments with methylolurea to determine its 
physical and chemical characteristics. 

Domestic Hot-Water Tanks and Heaters 

The corrosion of hot- water tanks has been studied for several years. 
This year, the fifth inspection of ten tanks at York station was made. These 
tanks are of various types, and the information obtained is being used in the 
Commission's domestic water-heating programme. 

Specimens of corroded galvanized steel sheets from hot-water tanks 
which had failed were studied to correlate, if possible, the characteristics of 
the galvanizing or steel base with the service life of the tanks. 



86 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

Some experiments were made with a view to developing a method of 
accelerated test of quality of galvanizing on iron and steel. The results 
obtained appear to explain certain phenomena observed in galvanized tanks 
and to provide a means of differentiating between good and poor galvanizing. 

A new quick-recovery flat-rate electric water-heater arrangement 
utilizing duplicate heater elements, one near the top of the tank, was 
developed, and tests have shown that it maintains the delivered water at a 
more nearly uniform temperature than the customary arrangement with 
one element near the bottom of the tank. It also provides a substantial 
increase in the amount of hot water available to meet peak demands. 
The duplicate heater elements are each of the rated capacity but are inter- 
locked so that only one heater is energized at any time. During a day when 
exceptional demands have nearly exhausted the stored hot water, a thermostat 
switches the lower heater off and turns on the upper heater which quickly 
heats the water in the upper part of the tank and maintains a limited supply 
for the balance of the day. 

Illumination 

A series of tests was conducted on the lighting of school classrooms, 
using a model in which measurements of distribution of light were made to 
determine the proper arrangement of luminaires and suitable surface and 
colouring of ceilings and upper walls. 

Masonry Materials 

Observations on the thermal and structural behaviour of Barrett Chute 
dam were continued and by diamond drilling, data were obtained on the condi- 
tions within Chats Falls dam. The cores from the latter dam were examined 
and physical tests made which showed the quality of the concrete to be satis- 
factory. 

The deterioration of cement in storage has been a subject of continued 
study. 

The recording of temperature gradients in concrete, referred to in last 
year's Annual Report, was continued and results show how the combined 
and opposed effects of ambient temperatures and absorption of radiant 
energy sharply change the gradients. The effect of these factors on freezing 
and thawing cycles at various faces was studied from the standpoint of 
durability of the concrete with regard to the direction of these faces. 

The study of aggregates as to their effect in expansive reactions with 
cement was continued. Field and laboratory tests on two types of absorptive 
linings, intended to produce more durable concrete surfaces, were made. 

Freezing and thawing tests were conducted in the Laboratories to study 
the durability of moulded, drilled and sawn specimens. 

Paints and Protective Coatings 

A large amount of research was done on the formulation of wood priming 
paints and the effect of pigments upon the tendency of paints to blister. 
This work resulted in the recommendation of special wood priming paints 
and an improved formula for exterior house paint, both of which are 
now in use by the Commission.

SCALE MODEL FOR SCHOOL LIGHTING STUDIES 

For photocell survey of light distribution at level of students' desks and at the blackboards 

to determine the effect of type and spacing of luminaires and of ceiling reflection factors 

Studies were made to establish special marking colors, and a specification 
for their use was prepared. 

Paint conditioning machines were investigated and one was purchased 
for use at Strachan Avenue and Niagara Stores. 

Petroleum Products 

The most important work of the year was a study to correlate laboratory 
test of insulating oil with the behaviour in the field. More than 1,000 samples 
of used oil were tested for viscosity, dissipation factor, interfacial tension, 
neutralization value and dielectric strength. The results are to be used to 
develop a quick laboratory method for the valuation of old oil in service. 

Comparative tests were made on several grades of earths for treatment 
of used oils to determine the grades most economical for field work. 

Experiments were conducted on wax dispersers for lowering the flow 
point of certain transformer oils in service. 

A large amount of work was done to determine the solubility of air 
in insulating oil and to find the amount dissolved in oil in certain types of 
transformers while in service. 



Investigations resulting from Factory Inspection 

A few investigations were made to obtain more information on conditions 
which were found during inspection of equipment or after its installation. 
These included a study of expensive core losses in two large power trans- 
formers to see if there were any localized fault, tests to determine the cause 
of gassing in a transformer, the behaviour of hottest spot temperature 
indicating equipment in power transformers and experiments with a metal 
spray method of repair to a turbine. 



88 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

Miscellaneous Research 

An experimental cold storage cabinet and freezer for farm use was 
completed and some tests were made. This cabinet can freeze at a satis- 
factory rate and can store 750 to 1,000 pounds of food. The operating temper- 
ature of the freezer was twelve degrees below zero Fahrenheit and provision 
was made for the protection of stored food in case of power failures. 

A large amount of investigational work was done on synthetic and 
rubber insulation, on wartime ropes, explosive hazards of certain gases, 
contact performance of vibrators, qualifications of components of direction- 
finding equipment, and on waxes, waxed paper wrapping and metal strapping 
for shipments overseas which are liable to long exposure to the elements. 

Metallographic studies were made on steel and aluminum wires from 
power lines that failed; the effect of mechanical injury on copper telephone 
wire also was studied, and the extensive soil investigations were continued. 

Routine Testing, Materials and Equipment Inspection 

The work of the Laboratories includes a large amount of routine testing 
of materials and various types of equipment, and also the factory inspection 
of power equipment being built for the Commission and the municipalities. 
The purpose of these services is to ensure high quality in material and work- 
manship and also suitable operating characteristics in the equipment which 
will result in the lowest possible expense for maintenance and the assurance 
of reliability in service. 

Electrical Equipment 

Acceptance tests were completed on two 40,000-kva synchronous 
condensers for Burlington transformer station, and electrical operating tests 
after installation were witnessed by the Laboratories. This inspection also 
included metal clad automatic starting equipment for the condensers, which 
was used in the electrical tests. 

Inspection and final electrical witness tests were made on 21 power 
transformers, with total capacity of 34,450 kva, six oil circuit breakers, 
total capacity 117,000 kva, and seven disconnecting switches, 244,000 kva. 
A total of 2,224 fused switches and 2,347 distribution transformers of small 
sizes with total capacity of 10,218 kva, were inspected and tested. 

Gradient tests were made in the field on 39 transformer and oil circuit- 
breaker bushings to determine their condition without interrupting their 
service. 

Routine tests were made in the Laboratories on 5,232 pairs of linemen's 
rubber gloves and on 1,680 samples of insulating oil. Special tests were made 
on 938 samples of oil. Instrument and distribution transformers tested 
amounted to 785, and 85 motors were given special tests. A few thermostats 
were tested, a total of 25. Insulators, to the number of 2,395, were tested 
and 1,607 watthourmeters were repaired. The number of indicating instru- 
ments calibrated, 170, was about the same as in the previous year.

Consisting of small neon lamp and high resistance mounted in 
insulating handles and connected in series. This was developed 
in the Commission's laboratories and provides a convenient and 
safe means of indicating whether services up to 550 volts 
are alive 



Mechanical and Structural Equipment 

The chief items in mechanical inspection of equipment during fabrication 
at the manufacturers' plants were for installation at generating or transformer 
stations. 

For Alexander development, the important equipment included one 
19,000 horsepower hydraulic turbine, one 15,000-kva generator, the embedded 
parts for the turbine, the head gates and hoisting equipment. None of this 
equipment was completed during the year. 

For Burlington transformer station, three 40,000-kva synchronous 
condensers, two of which were completed and installed. 

For Toronto Power generating station at Niagara, two turbine shafts 
and sixteen cast steel runners, eight of which have been completed, and for 
Cameron Falls, a thrust bearing runner plate. 

The tanks for all power transformers and oil circuit-breakers were 
inspected during manufacture with particular attention to the welding. 



90 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

Other welded equipment for the Commission was carefully checked and 
seventeen welded tanks for a transformer manufacturer were inspected. 

Concrete 

Four resident concrete inspectors and three other inspectors and assist- 
ants were engaged on three construction projects, namely, the installation 
of two synchronous condensers at Burlington transformer station, extensions 
to Alexander generating station and repairs at Eugenia development. The 
duties of these inspectors were the testing of aggregates, the supervising 
of processes and generally checking the quality of concrete. 

Field surveys were made at two sites to determine the nature of con- 
struction materials available. 

X-Ray and Microscopical Examinations 

The X-ray laboratory has been very active and assistance was given 
to government departments in the testing of castings. 

Radiographic examinations were made on 21,537 light metal castings, 
8,251 bronze and steel castings and 36 miscellaneous items such as heaters, 
bushings and small transformers. 

Microscopical examinations on 155 samples of metal were made to 
observe the nature of the material structure. 

Transmission Line Materials 

Inspection of transmission line materials which are handled at Strachan 
Avenue stores was continued through the year and included crossarms, 
brackets, insulator pins, clamps, general hardware, wire and cable. The 
amount of copper wire and galvanized steel cable inspected was 575 tons, 
being more than twice the quantity inspected last year. 

Steel and Timber 

Structural and reinforcing steel for new installations was inspected to 
the amount of 144 tons. A total of 14,609 pine and cedar poles for distri- 
bution line construction also were examined. 

Chemical Testing 

Protective coatings, including paints and substitutes used by the Com- 
mission on construction projects, are tested regularly in the laboratories, 
the number of samples this year being 123. 

Accelerated ageing tests of paints, made on the weatherometer, have 
proved to be a good guide in determining quality. 

Baking tests were made on 18 samples of paint by infra-red rays. This 
work was the continuation of a development started a few years before to 
use infra-red rays in commercial installations for the purpose of drying paints 
and varnishes.

THE CHEMICAL LABORATORY 

New testing benches and equipment, the fume cupboards at left and the weatherometer for 

accelerating testing of paints in background 

Petroleum products, 1,337 samples, were tested in this laboratory. 

Tests were made on 491 samples of other organic and inorganic materials. 
Water samples and water treating materials were tested and also some 
concrete materials, metals and alloys. 

Lamps and Lighting Equipment 

The number of lamps examined and tested in the factory was 72,226. 
Life tests were made on 3,262 lamps. 



New Equipment 

The Laboratories are still limited by wartime restrictions in the purchase 
of new testing equipment. It has been possible, however, to purchase some 
equipment required and to obtain necessary parts for other apparatus which 
has been designed and assembled for special applications. 

A galvanometer of high sensitivity was purchased for measuring insula- 
ation resistance in the Wire Test laboratory, and also an additional test 
oven and voltage control equipment. An electrical indicating tachometer 
was bought for use in testing rotating equipment in the laboratory and in 
the field. 

Equipment was assembled for conducting bend tests on weld samples. 
Special grips were made for use in tension tests on metallic materials. An 
ozone generator with simplied control was designed and built for testing 
insulation on wires and cables. Variable speed motor drive for the 20,000

INSPECTION OF HOLLOW SHAFTS BY THE BOROSCOPE 
This instrument, consisting of a reflecting prism, telescope and suitable source of illumina- 
tion, is used for inspecting the interior surfaces of bored shafts up to 48 feet in length 

lb. universal testing machine was constructed. An optical device for searching 
for faults within the bores of long hollow shafts was designed and completed, 
and was applied in factory inspection. 

Specification and Committee Work 

Members of the laboratory staff as representatives of the Commission, 
attended meetings and conferences of the following organizations, assisted 
in the preparation of specifications and were active in other committee work. 
Canadian Standards Association, National Research Council, Canadian 
Electrical Association, Engineering Institute of Canada, American Institute 
of Electrical Engineers, American Concrete Institute, American Society for 
Testing Materials, International Association of Electrical Inspectors, 
Canadian Manufacturers' Association, Ontario Municipal Electric Associa- 
tion, Association of Municipal Electrical Utilities, Illuminating Engineering 
Society, Wartime Labour Relations Board, Wartime Prices and Trade Board, 
Department of Munitions and Supply, Wartime Bureau of Technical Per- 
sonnel, and Dominion Board of Fire Underwriters. 



APPROVALS LABORATORY 

This Laboratory acts as agent of the Canadian Standards Association, 
taking care of approvals testing and factory re-examination of electrical 
equipment for Canada, and for manufacturers in the United States who would 
sell their products in Canada and have applied for approval under the 
Canadian Electrical Code. 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 93 

The Approvals Engineer attended meetings of the Approvals Adminis- 
trative Board, the Approvals Council, Canadian Electrical Code Committee 
Part II and the CSA Committee on Electric Range Switches. 

A review of the statistical report from the Approvals Division shows that 
applications for approval have returned nearly to the same number as were 
received two years previously and that the sale of approval labels has in- 
creased materially. Factory inspection reports are practically the same in 
number as in the previous year. Members of the staff have been consulted 
by manufacturers desiring to use substitutes for approved parts during the 
period of shortage of material caused by the war and again are being consulted 
by some manufacturers who are preparing to produce electrical equipment for 
civilian consumption at the end of the war. 

ELECTRICAL INSPECTION DEPARTMENT 

The relaxation of wartime restrictions, particularly in its effect upon 
electrical installations in rural areas, has increased the volume of work 
handled by the Electrical Inspection department. 

Statistical 

A total of 83,363 permits was issued, an increase of 17,848, or 27 per cent 
over the previous year, and 149,960 inspections were made, an increase£of 
12,845, or 9.4 per cent. 

Fires Attributed to Electricity 

Numerous investigations of fires were made but of the fires reported 
as having been due to electric wiring or equipment, only six were found defin- 
itely to have started from these sources. These were caused by short circuits 
in armoured cable, in non-metallic sheathed cable and in flexible conduit, 
by irons left heating and unattended in domestic establishments, and by an 
overloaded canopy switch which set fire to the ceiling. 

Electrocutions and Fatal Accidents 

Six persons were accidently electrocuted in! Ontario by coming into 
contact with wiring and equipment. A child touched a live toaster element 
while sitting on a metal sink; a machinist standing on a wet floor was working 
on an ungrounded electrically-operated grinder which had been connected 
temporarily; two men were attempting to move ungrounded portable coal 
loaders while standing on the ground; one man was attempting to move a 
portable welder, the machine being alive due to a defective supply cable; 
one man was working on a pole making alterations to overhead yard feeders 
on a neighbour's farm. 

Accidents, Non-Fatal 

Two persons were reported as having received shock or injury which did 
not result in death. One of these received a severe shock while helping to 
move one of the coal loaders already mentioned. The other, an operator, 
received severe burns while working in a private sub-station. 

Ground Tests 

A total of 2,350 tests of consumers' grounds was made, nearly five times 
as many as in the previous year. This increase was due to the removal of some 
of the wartime restrictions applicable to wiring in rural areas.

94 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

Infractions of Regulations 

Twenty-three persons or companies were prosecuted for various in- 
fractions of the rules and regulations governing the installation, sale and 
disposal of electrical equipment. 

Special Inspection of Equipment 

Some 656 applications were received from manufacturers and distributors 
of electrical equipment for the approval of devices not listed as approved by 
the Canadian Standards Association. The department reported on 1,075 
applications for special inspection or equipment. 

Canadian Electrical Code 

Engineers of the Approvals laboratory, and members of the Electrical 
Inspection staff and the Engineering department, attended seven meetings 
and assisted in compiling and revising sections of Parts I, II and IV of the 
Code. 

The work on Part I of the Code, on Electrical Installations, includes issu- 
ing interim revisions and interpretations and attending meetings of the 
Central Committee. Part II, on Approvals Specifications for Electrical 
Equipment, involves the preparation of draft specifications and interim 
revisions of published specifications, and also requires attendance at meetings 
with Part II Committee. 

The work on Part IV, on Radio Interference, includes preparations of 
drafts of sections of specifications for the purpose of ensuring good practice 
in methods of suppressing radio interference. Attendance also is necessary 
at meetings of the Committee on Part IV and at meetings of panels and sub- 
panels of the main committee. 

No new specifications were issued during the year but three specifications 
were advanced. This work has been in abeyance due to the war. 

PRODUCTION AND SERVICE DEPARTMENT 

The operation of the garage continued on a satisfactory basis. The 
volume of work was approximately equal to that of the previous year and 
included overhauling 82 trucks and reconditioning 30 units of gasoline- 
driven equipment for the Construction and Operating departments. Mis- 
cellaneous truck repairs, 1,375 orders, also were completed. 

Curtailment in the manufacture of commercial vehicles limited the 
purchases by the Commission to two trucks. All efforts, therefore, were 
confined to maintaining and rebuilding existing equipment. 

The policy of systematically inspecting and repairing the Commission's 
fleet of 380 trucks was continued. During the fiscal year, the fleet operated 
a total of 2,831,877 miles, an increase of 13.2 per cent over the previous year 
but still a gross reduction of 16.6 per cent since gasoline rationing was first 
instituted. 

The volume of work in the machine shop was much greater than in the 
previous year. Work completed for the various departments of the Com- 
mission increased 10 per cent, and in addition war work done under the 
auspices of the Public Utilities Wartime Workshop Board increased to the 
point where it was necessary to devote an additional 2,000 sq. ft. of floor 
space for this purpose.

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 

Relating to 

Properties Operated by The Hydro-Electric Power Commission on 

behalf of Co-operating Municipalities of the Southern Ontario 

System (Niagara, Georgian Bay and Eastern Ontario Divisions) 

and the Thunder Bay System, 

and. to 

Northern Ontario Properties Held and Operated by the Commission 
in Trust for the Province of Ontario, and 

The Hamilton Street Railway Company— A Subsidiary of 
the Southern Ontario System 



IN this section of the Report financial statements relating to the activities 
of The Hydro-Electric Power Commission, segregated into certain distinct 
divisions, are presented. The first division relates to those activities on behalf 
of the co-operative municipalities, which are partners in the main Hydro 
undertaking comprising the Southern Ontario system (Niagara, Georgian 
Bay and Eastern Ontario divisions), the Thunder Bay system, and Rural 
Power districts associated with these two systems. The second relates to 
the administration of the Northern Ontario Properties which are held and 
operated by the Commission in trust for the Province of Ontario. The 
third relates to The Hamilton Street Railway Company, a wholly-owned 
subsidiary of the Southern Ontario system. 

Co-operative Systems 

In the Foreword to this Report a brief reference is made to the basic 
principle governing the operations of the Hydro undertaking in supplying 
electrical service at cost, and to the wholesale and retail aspects of the work. 
A description is also given of the systems into which the partner municipalities 
are co-ordinated for securing common action with respect to power supplies, 
through the medium of The Hydro-Electric Power Commission which, 
under The Power Commission Act, functions as their Trustee. 



96 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

Although for the purpose of financial administration the Southern 
Ontario and Thunder Bay systems are separate units, there is a similarity 
of procedure with respect to their operation which enables certain financial 
statements, as for example the various reserves, to be co-ordinated and 
presented in summary tables. 

The first set of tables in Section IX gives collective results for the 
co-operative activities related to the two systems. These tables include a 
balance sheet; a statement of operations and cost distribution as 
detailed in the * 'cost of power" tables referred to below; schedules respecting 
fixed assets, capital expenditures and grants — rural power districts, 
account with the Provincial Treasurer of the Province of Ontario, 
funded debt issued or assumed, power accounts receivable, renewals 
reserves, contingencies and obsolescence reserves, stabilization of 
rates reserves and sinking fund reserves. 

The tables which follow these general financial statements relate more 
particularly to the individual municipality's aspects of the wholesale activities 
of the Commission and for each system show the cost of power to the 
individual municipal utilities, the credit or debit adjustment remaining at 
the end of the fiscal year, and the sinking fund equity that has been acquired 
by the individual municipality. There is also included for each system a 
rural operating statement. 

The charges for power supplied by the Commission to the various muni- 
cipalities vary with the amounts of power used, the distances from the sources 
of supply and other factors. The entire capital cost of the various power 
developments and transmission systems is annually allocated to the connected 
municipalities and other wholesale power consumers, according to the relative 
use made of the lines and equipment. In general each municipality assumes 
responsibility for that portion of property employed in providing and trans- 
mitting power for its use,* together with such expenses — including the cost 
of purchased power if any — as are incidental to the provision and delivery of 
its wholesale power. The annual expenses and the appropriations for reserves 
are provided out of revenues collected in respect of such power, through the 
medium of power bills rendered by the Commission. The municipalities are 
billed at an estimated interim rate each month during the year and credit or 
debit adjustment is made at the end of the year,f when the Commission's 
books are closed and the actual cost payable by each municipality for power 
taken has been determined. 

Included in the municipality's remittance to the Commission for the 
wholesale cost of power — besides such current expenses as those for operation 
and maintenance of plant, for administration, and for interest on capital — are 
sums required to build up reserves for sinking fund, for renewals, and for 
contingencies and obsolescence. The first-mentioned reserve, namely, 
sinking fund, is being created on a 40-year basis for the purpose of liquidating 

*Subject to maximun rate; see footnote on page 122. 

fThe financial year for the Commission ends on October 31. The financial year for the 
municipal electric utilities however, ends on December 31, and the municipal accounts are made 
up to this date, and so recorded in Section X.

capital liabilities. The other reserves are, respectively, being created to 
provide funds for the replacing or rebuilding of plant as it wears out; to 
enable the undertaking to replace existing equipment with improved equip- 
ment as it becomes available through advances in science and invention, and 
to meet unforeseen expenses which from time to time may arise. 

The ultimate source of all revenue to meet costs — whether for the larger 
operations of The Hydro-Electric Power Commission or for the smaller local 
operations of the municipalities — is, of course, the consumer. Out of the 
total revenue collected by each municipal utility from its consumers for 
service supplied, only an amount sufficient to pay the wholesale cost of power 
supplied by the Commission as outlined above is remitted to the Commission; 
the balance of municipal electrical revenue is retained to pay for the expense 
incurred by the local utility in distributing the electrical energy to its 
consumers. 

Tabular Data 

The following comments relate to the tabular data presented: 

Balance Sheet. — The first tabular statement given in Section IX 
is a balance sheet showing the assets, and the liabilities and reserves of 
the co-operative systems. 

Statement of Operations. — This statement is a summary of 
operating expenses and fixed charges as shown in the "cost of power" 
tables and rural operating statements relating to the individual systems 
as referred to more particularly below. 

Fixed Assets. — Details are given concerning the various fixed 
assets of each system and of the miscellaneous properties, showing in 
separate classifications the values of plant under construction and in 
service, depreciable and non-depreciable. 

Capital Expenditures and Grants. — Rural Power Districts. — 

This schedule gives summary information respecting the total capital 
expenditures on rural power districts and grants-in-aid of construction 
paid or payable by the Province with respect to such rural districts. 

Account with the Provincial Treasurer. — This schedule lists, 
both for the systems operated on a cost basis, and for the Northern 
Ontario Properties which are held and operated by the Commission in 
trust for the Province, the advances from the Province of Ontario and 
the repayments which have been applied to reduce this liability. It 
should be noted that Provincial advances to finance Northern Ontario 
Properties are shown in memorandum form only on the balance sheet 
of the Commission as the direct liability is carried on the Northern 
Ontario Properties' balance sheet. 

Funded Debt Issued or Assumed. — This schedule presents a 
complete list of the outstanding securities issued or assumed by the 
Commission on account of the systems, and the Northern Ontario 



98 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

Properties. It should be noted that securities issued to finance Northern 
Ontario Properties are shown only in memorandum form on the balance 
sheet of the Commission, whilst the direct liability is shown on the 
balance sheet of the Northern Ontario Properties. 

Power Accounts Receivable. — This schedule sets forth the 
amounts collectable from all classes of power consumers and includes 
the annual adjustment figures from the "credit or charge" statements 
for municipalities. The main details of these debit balances three 
months or more overdue are stated. 

Renewals Reserves, 

Contingencies and Obsolescence Reserves, and 

Stabilization of Rates Reserves. 

These schedules show the provisions made to, the expenditures 
from, and the balance to the credit of, these reserves for each of the 
systems and other properties included in the power undertakings 
operated on a cost basis. 

Sinking Fund Reserves. — This schedule summarizes the appro- 
priations of principal and interest with respect to these reserves for each 
of the systems and certain other properties. 

Following these statements, which are common to all systems, there are 
given for each of the co-operative systems four tabular statements as follows : 

Cost of Power statement, which shows the apportionment to each 
municipality of the items of cost summarized in Statement of Operations, 
as well as the apportionment of fixed assets in service listed in the 
balance sheet and the amount of power taken by each muncipality. 
It should be noted that the cost of power given in this table is the 
wholesale cost — that is, the cost which the Commission receives for the 
power delivered from the main transformer stations serving the local 
utility. In the case of municipal electrical utilities not directly admin- 
istered by the Commission, the respective costs of power appear in 
Statement "B" of Section X as "cost of power supplied by H-E.P.C." 

Credit or Charge statement, which shows the adjustments made 
in order to bring the amounts paid by each municipal electric utility 
to the actual cost of service. 

Sinking Fund statement, which gives the accumulated total of 
the amounts paid by each municipality as part of the cost of power 
together with its proportionate share of other sinking funds. 

Rural Operating statement, which summarizes for the rural 
power district of the system the various items of cost, and the revenues 
received, in connection with the distribution of electrical energy to 
rural consumers. 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 99 



Northern Ontario Properties 

The statements and schedules respecting these properties which are held 
and operated by the Commission in trust for the Province of Ontario include 
the balance sheet, operating account, schedule of fixed assets, renewals 
reserve, contingencies and obsolescence reserve, and sinking fund reserve. 
These schedules are similar in form to the corresponding schedules relating 
to the co-operative systems. 

The Hamilton Street Railway Company 

This is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Southern Ontario system of the 
Commission. A balance sheet and operating statement are presented. 

Municipal Utilities 

All municipal Hydro utilities have current expenses to meet similar to 
the expenses of the Commission and have adopted the same financial proce- 
dure with respect to their operations. In other words, concurrently with the 
creation of funds to liquidate their debt to the Commission and to provide 
the necessary reserves to protect generating, transforming and transmission 
systems, the municipalities are taking similar action with respect to their 
local Hydro utility systems. 

The balance sheets, operating reports and statistical data appearing in 
Section X, under the heading of ' 'Municipal Accounts", relate to the oper- 
ation of local distribution systems by individual municipalities which have 
contracted with the Commission for their supply of electrical energy. To 
this section there is an explanatory introduction to which the reader is spec- 
ially referred. 

Auditing of Accounts 

The accounts of The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario are 
verified by auditors specially appointed by the Provincial Government. 
The accounts of the ''Hydro" utility of each individual municipality are pre- 
pared according to approved and standard practice and The Public Utilities 
Act requires that they shall be audited by the auditors of the municipal 
corporation.

Auditors' Report ======= 

We have made an examination of the balance sheet of the Southern Ontario and Thunder Bay Systems of The 
Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario as at October 31, 1944 and of the attached statement of operations for 
the year ended on that date. In connection therewith we examined or tested accounting records of the Commission and 
made a general review of the accounting methods and of the operating and income accounts for the year, but we did 
not make a detailed audit of the transactions. 

We report that in our opinion the foregoing balance sheet and related statement of operations, as more fully 
reported upon by us to the Lieutenant-Governor in Council, have been drawn up so as to exhibit a true and correct 
view of the state of the affairs of the Southern Ontario and Thunder Bay Systems of the Commission at October 31, 
1944 (subject to the trusts which prevail in respect thereto) and the results of their operations for the year ended on that 
date, according to the best of our information and the explanations given us and as shown oy the books.

Auditors' Report 

We have made an examination of the balance sheet of the Northern Ontario Properties held and operated by 
The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario in trust for the Province of Ontario, as at October 31, 1944 and of 
the attached statements of operations and surplus for the year ended on that date. In connection therewith we examined 
or tested accounting records of the Commission and made a general review of the accounting methods and of the 
operating and income accounts for the year, but we did not make a detailed audit of the transactions. 

We report that in our opinion the foregoing balance sheet and related statements of operations and surplus, as 
more fully reported upon by us to the Lieutenant-Governor in Council, have been drawn up so as to exhibit a true 
and correct view of the state of the affairs of the Northern Ontario Properties operated by the Commission, at October 
31, 1944 and the results of their operation for the year ended on that date, according to the best of our information

Auditors' Report 

We have made an examination of the balance sheet of The Hamilton Street Railway Company as at October 31, 
1944 and of the attached statements of operations and surplus for the year ended on that date. In connection therewith 
we examined or tested accounting records of the Company and made a general review of the accounting methods 
and of the operating and income accounts for the year, but we did not make a detailed audit of the transactions. 

We report that in our opinion, subject to the adequacy of the accumulated reserve for depreciation, the foregoing 
balance sheet and related statements of operations and surplus have been drawn up so as to exhibit a true and correct 
view of the state of the affairs of The Hamilton Street Railway Company at October 31, 1944 and the results of its 
operations for the year ended on that date, according to the best of our information and the explanations given us and 
as shown by the books.

SECTION X 

MUNICIPAL ACCOUNTS 

and 

Statistical Data Relating to Hydro-Electric Distribution Systems 
Operated by Individual Municipalities Served by 
The Hydro-Electric Power Commission 
of Ontario 

The Municipal Accounts section of this report presents in summary, 
and individually, the results of the operation of the local electrical utilities 
in municipalities owning their own distributing systems and operating with 
energy supplied by or through The Hydro-Electric Power Commission. 

Financial statements prepared from the books of these Hydro utilities 
are submitted herein to show how each has operated during the past year, 
and its financial status at the present time. Other tables give useful statis- 
tical information respecting average costs for the various classes of service 
and the rates in force. 

The books of account of the electrical utilities in all municipalities which 
have contracted with The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario for 
a supply of power are kept in accordance with an accounting system designed 
by the Commission. 

Periodical inspections are made of the books of all Hydro electrical 
utilities and local officials are assisted in the improvement of their office 
routine with a view to standardizing, as far as possible, the methods employed. 
In the majority of the smaller municipalities much of the book-keeping for the 
electrical utilities is performed by representatives of the municipal accounting 
department of the Commission as a measure of economy. This arrangement 
insures the correct application of the standard accounting system, with re- 
sultant uniformity in classification of revenues and expenditures; secures 
true reflections of the actual operating results for the year, and greatly 
enhances the comparative values of the reports. 

The first financial statement in this section presents consolidated balance 
sheets for the past eight years. Similar data for earlier years since 1913 were 
published in the Report for 1943. This consolidated statement combines 
the balance sheets of all local municipal Hydro utilities receiving power

under cost contracts. It is worth noting that the total plant value has 
increased from $10,081,469.16 in 1913 to $103,089,543.64 in 1944, and the 
total assets from $11,907,826.86 to $206,175,328.24. The liabilities have not 
increased in the same proportion as the assets, rising from $10,468,351.79 
to a maximum of $52,685,316.86 in 1932, and receding to $16,073,250.87 
in 1944. The reasons for this are the regular fulfilment of debt retirement 
schedules under serial debenture provisions or by maturity of sinking funds, 
and also the fact that much of the cost of the increasing plant value has been 
financed out of reserves and surplus without increasing the capital liabilities 
of the respective utilities. By this procedure the funds of the systems are 
used to best advantage. Examination of the results will also show that there 
is a steady decline in the percentage of net liabilities to total assets; being 
from 88.0 per cent in 1913 to 7.4 per cent in 1944. The equities in The 
Hydro-Electric Power Commission's systems automatically acquired through 
the inclusion of sinking funds as part of the cost of power are not taken into 
account in arriving at these percentages. 

The second financial statement presents consolidated operating reports 
for the past eight years and combines the results from all local municipal 
Hydro utilities receiving power under cost contracts. After providing for 
every cost operation and fixed charges, including the standard provision for 
depreciation, the combined operating reports show a net surplus of $3,938,- 
375.14 for 1944. (See also diagrams in Foreword to Report.) 

The five statements, "A" to "E", following the two consolidated reports 
show the financial status of each municipal utility and the results of opera- 
tions, giving classified information respecting revenue, operating costs, 
number of consumers and consumption, cost of power to municipalities, 
power and lighting rates charged to consumers, etc. In statements "A" and 
"B", the municipalities are arranged alphabetically under each system; 
in statement "D" the municipalities are arranged in three groups — cities, 
towns and small municipalities; in statements "C" and "E" all municipalities 
are arranged alphabetically. (Statement "C" suspended, see below.) 

Statement "A" presents the balance sheet of each electrical utility. 
The plant values are shown under the general subdivisions specified in the 
standard accounting system and the other items on the positive side of the 
ledger which are included in total assets are self-explanatory. 

In conformity with a policy of service at cost to the customer, refunds 
by cash or credit are rnade during the year in many municipalities from 
surplus funds accrued to the credit of municipal services, such as street 
lighting, water works, sewage disposal, etc., and to individual customers. 
The total thus returned to customers during the year 1944 amounted in 
round figures to $842,000.00. 

The reserves for depreciation, and the acquired equity in The Hydro- 
Electric Power Commission's systems, are listed individually and totalled; 
and under the heading ' 'surplus" are included not only the operating surplus 
but the accumulation of sinking fund applicable to debenture debt and also 
the amount of debentures already retired out of revenue. 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 179 

The depreciation reserve now amounts to 34.9 per cent of the total depre- 
ciable plant, while the depreciation reserve and surplus combined have 
already reached the sum of $114,306,932.54, being equal to 110.9 per cent 
of the total plant cost. 

Statement "B" shows the detailed operating report for each municipal 
electrical utility. It gives annual revenues from the various classes of con- 
sumers; the items of expenditure which make up the total annual expenditure 
and the sums set aside for depreciation. The population served by each local 
utility and the number of consumers of each class are also shown. 

The item ''cost of power supplied by H-E.P.C." in this statement in- 
cludes the debit or credit balances ascertained by the annual adjustment of 
the cost of power supplied to the municipalities by the Commission. * 

Of the 298 municipal electrical utilities included in this statement, 285 
received from consumers revenue sufficient to meet in full all operating ex- 
penses, interest, debt retirement instalments, and standard depreciation 
reserve allocation and to yield an aggregate net -surplus of $3,950,864.80 for 
the year; 10 were able to defray out of revenue all such charges except a portion 
of the standard depreciation allocation aggregating $11,102.95, in the case of 
3 utilities the revenue was less than the total operating expenses, interest and 
debt retirement instalments by $100.71. 

Statement "C". Due to street lighting restrictions by the Power 
Controller since 1942 this statement has been omitted as it could not be 
used for comparative purposes. 

Statement "D" presents statistics relating to the supply of electrical 
energy to consumers in Ontario municipalities served by the Commission. It 
shows the revenue, kilowatt-hour consumption, number of consumers, average 
monthly consumption, average monthly bill and the net average cost per 
kilowatt-hour both for domestic and for commercial light service in each 
municipality. For power service this statement shows the revenue, the 
number of consumers and the average horsepower supplied by the municipal 
utility, f For further reference to this informative statement, consult the 
special introduction to it on page 290. 

Statement "E" presents the cost per horsepower of the power provided 
for and delivered to the municipalities by the Commission, and the local rates 
to consumers in force in the respective municipalities, during the year 1944, 
for domestic service, for commercial light service and for power service. 

♦In 1939 and 1940 a number of municipalities asked permission to take power cost adjust- 
ments into the following year, to facilitate the earlier closing of their books. On this account, 
from 1941 on, with few exceptions the Balance Sheet shows the previous year's equity in Hydro 
Commission properties; and the Cost of Power in the Operating Statement includes the previous 
year's adjustments. 

fThe statistics include retail power only. Wholesale industrial power as supplied by the 
Commission direct, is reported in Section IX.

STATEMENT "C" 
Street Lighting Installation in Hydro Municipalities 



Due to restrictions and changes resulting from orders of the

(pages 290 to 307) 

Statistics relating to the Supply of Electrical Energy to Consumers 

in Ontario Urban Municipalities Served by

STATEMENT "E" 

(pages 308 to 325) 

Cost of Power to Municipalities and Rates to Consumers for 

Domestic Service — Commercial Light Service — Power Service 

in Ontario Urban Municipalities Served by 

The Hydro-Electric Power Commission 

for the year 1944 



290 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 

STATEMENT "D" 

Statistics Relating to the Supply of Electrical Energy to 

Consumers in Urban Municipalities Served by 

The Hydro-Electric Power Commission 

Regarding the results of Hydro operation from the standpoint of the 
consumers, the following tabulation gives much useful and interesting infor- 
mation. For each main class of service in each urban municipal utility receiv- 
ing power at cost from the Commission, Statement "D" lists the revenue, the 
consumption and the number of consumers, together with unit average costs 
and consumptions and other pertinent data. 

The policy and practice of the Commission has been, and is, to make as 
widespread and beneficial a distribution of electrical energy as possible, and to 
extend to every community that can economically be reached by transmission 
lines, the benefit of electrical service. Even where, in certain localities, by 
reason of the distance from a source of supply or on account of the small 
quantity of power required by the municipality, the cost per horsepower to 
the municipality — and, consequently, the cost of service to the consumer — 
must unavoidably be higher than in more favourably situated communities, 
service has not been withheld when the consumers were able and willing to 
pay the cost. 

The accompanying diagram summarizes graphically certain data of 
Statement "D" respecting the average cost to the consumer. It will be 
observed that the total amount of energy sold in municipalities where circum- 
stances necessitate rates which result in the higher average costs to the con- 
sumer is relatively insignificant. With respect to power service, it should be 
noted that the statistics of Statement "D", and of the diagram, cover mainly 
retail power service supplied to the smaller industrial consumers. The aver- 
age amount of power taken by the industrial consumers served by the 
municipalities is about 45 horsepower. The Commission serves certain 
large power consumers direct on behalf of the systems of municipalities. 

It should be kept in mind that the revenues reported in Statement "D", 
and used for purposes of calculating the net unit costs to the consumer, are 
the total revenues contributed by the consumers, and provide, in addition to 
the cost of power, sums specifically applicable to the retirement of capital, 
and also operating surplus which is in part applied to retirement of capital 
or extension of plant and is in part returned in cash to the consumers. 

It should also be noted that average costs per kilowatt-hour or per horse- 
power if employed indiscriminately as a criterion by means of which to com- 
pare the rates or prices for electrical service in various municipalities, will give 
misleading results. The average cost per kilowatt^hour, as given in State- 
ment "D" for respective classes of service in each municipality, are statistical 
results obtained by dividing the respective revenues by the aggregate kilowatt- 
hours sold. As such, the data reflect the combined influence of a number 
of factors, of which the rates or prices to consumers are but one factor. Owing 
to the varying influence of factors other than the rates, it is seldom found that 
in any two municipalities the average cost per kilowatt-hour to the consumers, 
even of the same classification, is in proportion to the respective rates for ser- 
vice. Instances even occur where for a class of consumers in one municipality, 
the average costs per kilowatt-hour are substantially lower than for the same 
class in another municipality, even though the rates are higher.

THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF 



No. 26 



With respect to domestic service, for example, instances may be observed 
where two municipalities have identical prices or rates for domestic service, 
but the average cost per kilowatt-hour to the consumer varies by as much as 
50 per cent or more. Such variations are due principally to differences in the 
extent of utilization of the service for the operation of electric ranges, water 
heaters and other appliances, an indication of which is afforded by the statis- 
tics of average monthly consumption. 

In the case of power service, average unit costs are still less reliable as an 
indication of the relative rates for service in different municipalities. In the 
case of hydro-electric power supplied to industries at cost, the rate schedules 
incorporate charges both for demand and for energy consumption, and thus, 
although the quantity of power taken by a consumer — that is, the demand 
as measured in horsepower — is the most important factor affecting costs and 
revenues, it is not the only one. The number of hours the power is used in 
the month or year — which, in conjunction with the power, determines the 
energy consumption, as measured in kilowatt-hours — also affects the costs 
and revenues. Consequently, in two municipalities charging the same rates 
for power service, the average cost per horsepower to the consumer will vary 
in accordance with the consumers' average number of hours use of the power 
per month. A greater average energy consumption per horsepower increases 
the average cost per horsepower and decreases the average cost per kilowatt- 
hour to the consumer, and vice versa.* 

*In view of the fact that the data of Statement "D" have been misinterpreted in the making 
of certain comparisons as to the cost of electricity in various territories, it is desirable to add 
a word of caution respecting their significance. Essentially, the average cost or revenue per 
kilowatt-hour is not a criterion of rates even with similar forms of rate schedules and for the same 
class of service. Particularly is this true when revenues and consumptions of all classes of service 
and of all kinds of rate schedules, are indiscriminately lumped together in order to deduce a 
so-called "average cost or rate per kilowatt-hour" for all services. 

In one community rates for each class of service, and the cost to every consumer in each class for 
any given service and consumption, may be substantially higher than in another community, and yet 
there may be in the former community a lower ''average revenue per kilowatt-hour." 

Example. — Assume sales of electrical energy by two electric utilities, A and B, in each case 
10,000,000 kilowatt-hours.

It will be observed that in Case A the rates both for residence and for power service are 33 
per cent higher than in Case B, but the average revenue per kilowatt-hour is nearly 9 per cent less. 

In this instance, the explanation lies in the relative quantities of energy sold to each class. 
Service to large power consumers entails a smaller capital investment in distribution lines and 
equipment and lower operating costs per kilowatt-hour delivered, than does service to domestic 
and to commercial light consumers, and even where the rates for all classes of service are low, 
produces a smaller average revenue per kilowatt-hour. Consequently, if one electrical utility 
as compared with another sells a larger proportion of its energy for power purposes, its "average 
revenue per kilowatt-hour" may easily be lower than that of the other utility even though its 
rates for every class of service are substantially higher. 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 293 

Although the derived statistics of Statement "D" are valueless as a means 
of comparing the rates in one municipality with those in another, they never- 
theless fulfil a function in affording a general measure of the economy of service 
to consumers in the co-operating Ontario municipalities — an economy that 
has resulted primarily from the low rates themselves, and secondarily from 
the extensive use of the service that has been made possible by the low rates. 

Actual bills rendered to typical consumers for similar service under 
closely comparable circumstances constitute the best basis for making com- 
parisons. In researches respecting rates to consumers therefore the actual 
rate schedules of Statement "E" should be employed and not statistics of 
average revenues per kilowatt-hour, as these are valueless for rate comparisons 
— and particularly so when all classifications of service are combined. 

In any consideration of the relative economies of electrical service in the 
various municipalities — whether based on the actual rates for service as set 
forth in Statement "E", or on the derived statistics resulting from the rates 
and other factors as presented in Statement "D" — full account should be 
taken respectively of the influence upon costs of such factors as the size of 
the municipality, the distance from the source of power, the features of the 
power developments, the sizes and concentrations of adjacent markets for 
electricity, and the sizes and characters of the loads supplied under the 
various classifications by the local electrical utility to the consumers. 

In Statement "D" account has been taken of the sizes of municipalities by 
grouping them according to whether they are (i) cities — over 10,000 popula- 
tion; (ii) towns of 2,000 to 10,000 population; or (iii) small towns less than 
2,000 population, villages, and suburban areas in townships (which are com- 
parable in respect of conditions of supply to the smaller towns and villages). 
The populations are also given, and the situation of any municipality with 
respect to transmission lines and power supplies may be ascertained by con- 
sulting the maps at the end of the Report. 

A feature of the electrical service in Ontario municipalities served by The 
Hydro-Electric Power Commission is the strikingly large average annual con- 
sumption per domestic consumer. Of the 90 cities and towns with popula- 
tions of 2,000 or more — in which over 85 per cent of the domestic consumers 
of the undertaking are served — no less than 88 have an average annual con- 
sumption per domestic consumer in excess of 1,000 kilowatt-hours; of these, 
68 have an average annual consumption per domestic consumer in excess of 
1,500 kilowatt-hours, 39 in excess of 2,000 kilowatt-hours, and 10 in excess of 
3,000 kilowatt-hours. In addition 111 smaller urban municipalities have an 
average annual consumption per domestic consumer exceeding 1,000 kilowatt- 
hours, including 26 in excess of 2,000 killowatt-hours. 

The high average consumption for domestic service results essentially 
from the policy of the undertaking in providing service "at cost"; the rate 
schedules designed according to this principle automatically encourage liberal 
use of the service. Under the standard rate schedules employed by Ontario 
municipalities, follow-up rates of 0.8 to 1.2 cents (less 10 per cent) are 
in common use, and as a rule even where the higher initial rates per kilowatt- 
hour obtain, it is only necessary for the domestic consumer to reach a monthly 
charge of from $2.00 to $3.00 to obtain the benefit of a follow-up rate of 1.8 
cents net or less. The cost of electric cooking is thus within reach cf most of 
the domestic consumers in Ontario. Electric water heating is also encouraged 
by low flat rates for continuous heaters and by installation of equipment 
without capita] cost to the consumer. In 1941, war conditions made neces- 
sary the suspension of new installations for water heating.

"D"— Continued 

in Ontario Municipalities Served by the Commission 

and for Power Service during the year 1944 

VILLAGES AND SUBURBAN AREAS 

distribution to small communities has always characterized Hydro service and although the 
power used in the smaller places and rural districts is a relatively small proportion of the power 
distributed by the Commission, it exerts upon the economic life of the Province a most beneficial 
influence. Consult also introduction to Statement "D", page 290.

308 THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF No. 26 



STATEMENT "E" 



Cost of Power to Municipalities and Rates to Consumers for 

Domestic Service — Commercial Light Service — Power Service 

in Ontario Urban Municipalities Served by 

The Hydro-Electric Power Commission 

for the year 1944 

In Statement "E" are presented the rate schedules applicable to con- 
sumers for domestic service, for commercial light service and for power service 
in each of the co-operating municipalities receiving service at cost through 
The Hydro-Electric Power Commission.* The cost per horsepower of the 
power supplied at wholesale by the Commission to the municipality, an 
important factor in determining rates to consumers, is also stated. 

Cost of Power to Municipalities 

The figures in the first column represent the total cost for the year of the 
power supplied by the Commission to the municipality, divided by the number 
of horsepower supplied. Details respecting these costs are given in the "Cost 
of Power" tables relating to the systems, as presented in Section IX, and an 
explanation of the items making up the cost of power is given in the intro- 
duction to that Section. 

Rates to Consumers 

The Power Commission Act stipulates that "The rates chargeable by any 
municipal corporation generating or receiving and distributing electrical power 
or energy shall at all times be subject to the approval and control of the 
Commission," f. In accordance with the Act and in pursuance of its fundamental 
principle of providing service at cost, the Commission requires that accurate 
cost records be kept in each municipality, and exercises a continuous super- 
vision over the rates charged to consumers. 

At the commencement of its operations, the Commission introduced 
scientifically-designed rate schedules for each of the three main classes into 
which electrical service is usually divided, namely: residential or domestic 
service, commercial light service, and power service, and the schedules in use 
during the past year are presented in the tables of this statement. 

*Except townships served as parts of rural power districts, for which consult Section IV. 
fR.S.O. 1937, Ch. 62, Sec. 89. 



1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 309 

Domestic Service: Domestic rates apply to electrical service in residences, 
for all household purposes, including lighting, cooking and the operation of all 
domestic appliances. 

During the past few years most of the urban municipal utilities have 
further simplified the domestic-rate structure by abolishing the service charge, 
and making a suitable adjustment in the first consumption rate.. Where the 
service charge is retained at 33 and 66 cents gross per month the charge of 
33 cents per month per service is made when the permanently installed 
appliance load is under 2,000 watts, and the charge of 66 cents per month 
when 2,000 watts or more. 

Commercial Light Service: Electrical energy used in stores, offices, churches, 
schools, public halls and institutions, hotels, public boarding-houses, and in 
all other premises for commercial purposes, including sign and display lighting, 
is billed at commercial lighting rates. 

Water-Heater Service: For all consumers using continuous electric water 
heaters, low flat rates are available consisting of a fixed charge per month 
dependent on the capacity of the heating element and the cost of power to the 
municipal utility. Such heaters are so connected that the electrical energy 
they consume is not metered. For new installations the necessary equip- 
ment, including heater, thermostat, efficient insulation for water-storage tank, 
and wiring, is installed by a large number of municipal Hydro utilities, 
without capital cost to the consumer, f The installation of new water-heating 
services is suspended for the duration of the war. 

Power Service: The rate schedules given for power service in Statement 
"E" are those governing the supply of power at retail by each of the local 
municipal utilities. The Commission serves direct, certain large power con- 
sumers under special contracts, on behalf of the systems of municipalities. 

The rates for power service, as given in the tables, are the rates for 24-hour 
unrestricted power at secondary distribution voltage. For service at primary 
distribution voltage the rates are usually five per cent lower than those stated. 
In municipalities where load conditions and other circumstances permit, lower 
rates are available for ' 'restricted power", discounts additional to those listed 
in the table being applicable. 

The service charge relates to the connected load or to the maximum 
demand, as measured by a 10-minute average peak, where a demand meter 
is installed. The prompt payment discount of 10 per cent on the total 
monthly bill is given for settlement within 10 days. 

Under the tabulation of rates for power service there is a column headed 
"Basis of rate 130 hours' monthly use of demand." This column shows 
approximately the net annual amount payable for a demand of one horse- 
power, assuming a monthly use of 130 hours, which includes 30 hours' use each 
month at the third energy rate. Broadly, the figures in this column serve to 
indicate approximately the relative cost of power service in the different 
municipalities listed. 

fin addition, the municipal Hydro utilities supply booster water-heating equipment to 
furnish extra requirements beyond the capacity of the continuous heater ; current for the booster 
heater is measured and charged for at the regular rates.

GENERATING STATIONS 



Operated by The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario 

on Behalf of Municipalities Comprising the Co-operative Systems 

and on Behalf of the Province in the case of the 

Northern Ontario Properties 

In 1932, a list of generating stations operated by the Commission was 
published in the Twenty-fourth Annual Report; year 1931. Seven years later, 
in 1939, a revised list was published as Appendix IV to the Thirty-first 
Annual Report; year 1938. Since that time many additions and changes 
have been made. The following tabulation brings the record up to the end 
of 1944. 

On the following pages, the generating stations are grouped under the 
systems to which they respectively belong, and particulars are given of the 
hydraulic features of the developments, the turbines, the generators, the 
exciters and the step-up and step-down transformers. Transmission line 
mileage is route or structure mileage not circuit mileage.

SOUTHERN ONTARIO SYSTEM 

In February 1944 the Niagara, Georgian Bay and Eastern Ontario co-operative systems were 
amalgamated to form the Southern Ontario system. For many years there had been inter- 
change of power and increasing co-ordination of operation and during 1943 parallel operation of 
the Niagara and Eastern Ontario power resources and of the Niagara and Georgian Bay power 
resources was maintained through the frequency-changer equipment at Chats Fails and at 
Hanover respectively. 

The generating stations of the Commission are all water power developments and aie listed 
as encountered ascending the respective rivers and tributaries. The Niagara division operates 
at 25 cycles except for the Dominion Power and Transmission 50,000 hp plant at DeCew Falls 
66% cycles. The Georgian Bay and Eastern Ontario divisions operate at 60 cycles. The Thunder 
Bay system operates at 60 cycles. The Abitibi plant of the Northern Ontario Properties operates 
at 25 cycles; other northern plants at 60 cycles.

1945 THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 341 



EASTERN ONTARIO DIVISION 

General — This division serves that portion of the Province east of the area served by 
the Georgian Bay and Niagara divisions. It is a consolidation of what was formerly the Central 
Ontario and Trent system with the St. Lawrence, Rideau, Ottawa and Madawaska systems. 
Power is obtained from developments on the Trent, Madawaska and Mississippi rivers, supple- 
mented with power from the frequency-changer station at Chats Falls development on the Ottawa 
river, and purchased power from the Gatineau river. The Gatineau power is obtained on contract 
over a 110 kv transmission line, owned by the Commission, which connects with the lines of the 
Gatineau Power Company at the Inter-provincial boundary near the west city limits of Ottawa, 
and to Chats Falls frequency-changer station, and extends to step-down stations at Smiths Falls, 
Kingston, Cornwall and Trenton, from which it is distributed to the respective districts. The line 
is tapped near the south-west limits of the city of Ottawa to connect with a step-down station 
which supplies its share of power to the municipality. Complete interconnection and paralleling 
of the various generating stations does not normally obtain, but interchange of power between 
different sections is possible. 

The Central Ontario district is the most westerly district of the Eastern Ontario division of 
the Southern Ontario system. Power in this district is obtained from developments on the Trent 
river and its tributaries. The generators are connected through step-up transformers, and thus 
operate in parallel through one network of transmission lines. Power is also purchased from the 
municipality of Campbellford, and in emergencies from the Peterboro Hydraulic Power Company 
and the Canadian General Electric Company. Originally this area was served by subsidiary com- 
panies of the Electric Power Company, but by agreement, March 10, 1916, under the provisions 
• of the Central Ontario Power Act of 1916, the Commission assumed control of the interests and 
properties of these companies. In addition to the generating and distributing systems these in- 
cluded two waterworks systems, three gas plants, and one pulp mill. The companies included in 
this agreement were: Auburn Power Company, Limited; Central Ontario Power Company, Limited; 
City Gas Company of Oshawa, Limited; Cobourg Utilities Coproration, Limited; Cobourg Gas, 
Light and Water Company; Eastern Power Company, Limited; Light, Heat and Power Company 
of Lindsay; Napanee Gas Company, Limited; Napanee Water and Electric Company; Northum- 
berland Pulp Company, Limited; Peterboro Radial Railway Company; Port Hope Electric Light 
and Power Company; Seymour Power and Electric Company, Limited; Sidney Electric Power 
Company, Limited; Trenton Electric and Water Company, Limited; Tweed Electric Light and 
Power Company, Limited; Nipissing Power Company, and North Bay Light, Heat and Power 
Company, Limited; of these the last two are part of the Nipissing district, Northern Ontario 
Properties. 

The 5/. Lawrence district is the most easterly district of the division. There are no develop- 
ments owned by the Commission in this district, power being purchased from the Gatineau Power 
Company. It is delivered at 110 kv to the Commission's transformer station at Cornwall, where 
it is stepped down for transmission through the 44 kv network to the various municipalities. 

• 
The Rideau district comprises the area between the Central Ontario and the St. Lawrence 
districts. Power developed in the district is obtained from developments on the Mississippi river; 
1,050 hp is also purchased from the Rideau Power Company. 

The Ottawa district comprises a section of the municipality of Ottawa and adjacent territory. 
Power first delivered by Commission in July, 1907, subsequent to purchase by municipality, in 
1905, from Consumers Electric Company, of distributing system. Three-phase, 60-cycle power 
is purchased from Ottawa and Hull Power and Manufacturing Company at 11 kv and delivered 
directly to the municipality. 

The Madawaska district comprises municipalities in the lower Madawaska and Mississippi and 
neighbouring Ottawa river valleys. Original developments were made bv M. J. O'Brien Company, 
Limited and its subsidiary, the Galetta Electric Power and Milling Company, Limited. The 
interests and properties of this company were taken over by the Commission and operation 
assumed May 31, 1929. Power is obtained from developments on the Madawaska and Mississippi 
rivers, the transmission voltage on the former being 33 kv, and on the latter 11 kv. The two net- 
works are tied together through transformers at Arnprior transformer station. 

Transmission Lines— 110 kv = 443.37 miles, 44 kv = 629.44 miles, 33 kv = 101.36 miles, 
26.4—6.6 kv = 88.12 miles. 

Transformer Stations— Total capacity in 86 stations owned by the Commission = 404,592 
£72 *?> follows: 16— step-up 140,000 kva; 8— step-down 154,000 kva; and 62— distributing 
110,592 kva.
